Internships at the Pacific Rim Institute provide participants with skills, knowledge and ethics related to restoring native habitat and/or environmental outreach.
Restoration interns work directly with the Land Steward and other staff in all activities related to stewarding the prairie and forests. Tasks include collecting and processing native seed, managing invasive species, preparing land for restoration, growing native plants in a greenhouse, and collecting data. Restoration interns also help with day to day activities such as maintaining native landscaping, keeping the Native Plant Center organized, and leading volunteers. All these tasks contribute to the successful stewardship of the Pacific Rim land.
Outreach interns have the opportunity to assist with projects that help spread the name of Pacific Rim and help educate the community about the prairie and Creation. Interns assist the PRI staff in accomplishing goals in the areas of marketing, public relations, special events and community education. This may include representing PRI at various festivals and events around the region, developing educational tools, writing grants, and working with volunteers.
