AWS' Internship Opportunities

 

Our Summer Interns from last year (from left to right, Alexandra, Jason, Mike, Mallory and Juvencio) after a morning of hard work in the tidal wetlands of the River.

There hasn't been a better time than now to become an AWS intern! Our organization is growing, we have new exciting programs and projects; and a dedicated and amicable staff that works hard at cleaning and restoring the Anacostia River and its watershed. This year we have 12 internship (unpaid) positions available for the spring and summer:

Spring

  • Arborist Intern (1 position)
  • Meadow Restoration Intern (1 position)
  • Stewardship Interns (3 positions)

Summer

  • Stewardship Interns (6 positions)

Spring & Summer

  • Green Roofs Rebate Program Intern (1 position)


Jack, a 2011 spring and fall intern, helped us collect cuttings of the rhizomes of Spatterdock (Nuphar lutea) at the amazing wetlands of the Patuxent River at Jug Bay. These cuttings were grown in wetbeds and then used to revegetate the wetland of the Anacostia River. One of the most fun parts of our stewardship internships, according to many of our interns, is to get out and go kayaking and canoeing. 

Our internships provide an outstanding exposure to the real world of watershed stewardship and the many disciplines associated with it such as LID, arboriculture, invasive plant management, ecological restoration, among others. Interns will also get to know the world of locally based environmental NGOs. AWS provides a valuable internship experience that mixes fun outdoor work (which sometimes entails kayaking and canoeing in the River!) with the more indoor/administrative work. More specifically, interns will gain knowledge about native and nonnative plant identification and management, reforestation, grantwriting, green roofs, meadow creation, wetland restoration, etc. At AWS interns work in an interdisciplinary environment with different professionals and volunteers from different backgrounds.

Our summer interns from last year also got the opportunity to do some research by participating in the Global Garlic Mustard Field Survey. This is an interesting international field research project that is evaluating the characteristics of the populations of the invasive plant throughout North America and Europe.
