The Madison County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is offering a summer internship in 2024. The internship is open to current college students (including spring 2024 graduates) majoring in a field of study related to agriculture, conservation, and other relevant studies as listed in the announcement.
The intern will assist the SWCD with various activities including field visits, layout and checkout of conservation practices, education and outreach, and other general office duties, as well as completing a special project for the SWCD (such as a research project, developing educational materials, planning an outreach event, etc.).
This internship is a great way to get exposure to SWCDs, the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). The special project provides an opportunity for the intern to focus part of their time on a topic they are interested in.
To apply, students should submit a cover letter, resume, and list of three references to the Madison SWCD by Tuesday, February 20, 2024.
Information about the summer internship and other opportunities for students is available on Madison SWCD’s website: https://www.madison-swcd.org/for-students/
