 Hi Again,

Ecology Project International (EPI) is seeking a field instructor 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 session will be comprised of six interns. Interns will be
paired with MPG staff or affiliates to assist with ongoing research,
service, or outreach projects and complete their own related research
project. EPI has offered the Bitterroot Wildlife Internship program in
conjunction with MPG Ranch since 2014. The field instructor will mentor,
supervise, and manage the intern experience.

Bitterroot Wildlife Internship instructors will spend Sunday
afternoon-Thursday of each week at the ranch leading interns to complete
conservation service projects (approximately 10hrs/week), conduct
ecological research (approximately 16hrs/week), and learn about the
Bitterroot Valley’s ecosystem (approximately 6 hrs/week). Instructors and
interns will camp in a designated campsite on the ranch Sunday-Thursday.
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 journaling.
