Description

SCA wildlife intern working in the Environmental Stewardship Section of the Willamette Valley Project (WVP) for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. WVP is a major water resource project responsible for operating 13 dams and managing natural resources and recreation in the lakes and surrounding lands. We manage nearly 50,000 acres in the Willamette, McKenzie, and Santiam watersheds.  The Environmental Stewardship section is known for our community partnerships in natural resource preservation and restoration.

The SCA intern will assist with monitoring and trapping sensitive wildlife species including the Northwestern pond turtle, Western purple martin, bald eagle, and other species as needed.  The primary responsibilities will be turtle nest searching, capture of non-native turtles, collecting GPS and morphometric data, and data entry. Work is focused around lakes in the southern Willamette Valley. Additional duties may include field support of other natural resource programs such as native plant surveys, invasive plant removal, assisting with plant nursery operations, cultural resources monitoring, boundary surveys, or park operations.
