JOB: Healthy Streams Fellow

February 19, 2024
More than 75% of streams in Kansas are unsuitable for human use. These unique and fragile ecosystems continue to lose their diversity at an alarming rate. But many Kansas streams can be restored, and a few are still nearly as pristine as they were historically. Healthy Streams for Kansas focuses on streams that fit one of these categories: those that reasonably can be recovered, and those that need only protection from pollution or development. The Fellow will help advance the mission of the Healthy Streams Initiative by doing research and reviewing scientific literature, mapping data, assisting with fieldwork, and attending meetings with partners.
 
The fellow will have the opportunity to broaden their experiences through interactions with Conservancy staff, conservation partners, and by attending natural resources events. This work will be a valuable step toward your future career path. Previous interns have gone on to work in various positions within The Nature Conservancy, as well as with local, state, and federal agencies, academia, other nonprofit organizations, and natural resource contracting. The Fellow will work primarily virtually but may travel around the state to visit project sites, as circumstances allow.
