All projects are dependent upon available fieldwork and may include working alongside our community forest partnerships in Kake and Hoonah, AK. You will also work with teams on restoration projects. Additional work will include conducting surveys and research on our carbon offset project land. You’ll engage with people and communities throughout your internship and work to enhance and sustain the Alaskan wilderness.
