SEACC Intern- last day to apply

Just a reminder that we are still accepting applications for our wilderness stewardship internship. Technically it was supposed to close tomorrow, but we are still looking for the right applicant and are hoping to maybe find someone from one of the UAS programs. Please forward this email to your colleagues, students, etc. and encourage them to apply as soon as possible. I've let Dan Lesh, who is doing the direct hiring, know that we may get a few applications past the application date (which is tomorrow, March 23). Here is the internship description one more time:

The Southeast Alaska Conservation Council is currently soliciting applications for a Wilderness Stewardship Intern for summer 2011.  The internship is paid (stipend of $4-5K), full time for three months (June-August, though exact timing is negotiable), and based in Juneau, Alaska.  SEACC is the premier environmental organization in Southeast Alaska, with a successful 40-year record of defending our region's globally-unique old growth temperate rain forest and advancing sustainable economic opportunities in Southeast Alaska's culturally diverse and unique communities.
 
Intern responsibilities will include: organizing of and participation in three week-long wilderness stewardship excursions (into Wilderness areas in the Tongass National Forest) in partnership with USFS officials and public partners; outreach to the public and SEACC members to involve them in these wilderness stewardship and solitude monitoring efforts; and grassroots organizing that links these wilderness stewardship efforts with ongoing advocacy efforts at SEACC involving the creation of new wilderness areas.  Applications will be evaluated for experience in wild areas; knowledge of Southeast Alaska and various wilderness user groups (subsistence and recreation hunters and fishers, tour groups, scientists, private parties, etc); and ability to work independently in a dynamic and social environment.
 
Intern will be managed by Dan Lesh, SEACC Energy Coordinator.  Please send applications--including resume, cover letter, and references--to dan (at) seacc.org.  Application period is open until March 23, after which applications will accepted until the position is filled.

Thanks! Hope to hear from some UAS students soon!
