Ecology Project International (EPI) is hiring two field instructors to
mentor and deliver academic content for 12 Bitterroot Wildlife Internship
program high school interns this summer.

The Bitterroot Wildlife Internship (BWI) program is a partnership
between Ecology
Project International <http://www.ecologyproject.org/> (EPI) and MPG Ranch
<http://www.mpgranch.com/> that offers a unique experience for high school
students that combines ecological education, conservation service, and
hands-on field research at MPG Ranch in Florence, Montana from June-August.
Each month-long intern session will be comprised of six interns. Interns
will be paired with MPG researchers to assist with ongoing research
projects and complete their own related research question. EPI has offered
the Bitterroot Wildlife Internship program in conjunction with MPG Ranch
since 2014.

Bitterroot Wildlife Internship instructors will spend Sunday
afternoon-Thursday of each week atthe ranch leading interns in completing
conservation service projects (approximately 10hrs/week), conducting
ecological research (approximately 16hrs/week), and learning about the
Bitterroot Valley’s ecosystem (approximately 6 hrs/week). At night the
group will camp out under the stars. Conservation projects on the ranch
might include pulling invasive weeds, removing fencing, and gathering
native seeds. Potential research involvement includes avian, soil, plant,
ungulate, and insect projects. Instructors will also teach Leave No Trace
awareness, guide wildlife observation, and mentor the interns in nature
