Summer Interns — 2017

LOCAL STUDENTS WORKING, LEARNING AND TEACHING

GLLT creates two or three paid Summer Intern positions for local students each summer.
The program goal is to promote conservation-minded stewardship and to create future leaders for the GLLT mission.

The donor-funded program provides our interns the opportunity to develop a connection to the work of the GLLT in land preservation, land stewardship and management, recreational management and environmental education. They spend their days working in the outdoors caring for recreational and forestlands, and helping to present our popular Environmental Education program.

A preference is given to students who have ties to the Towns of Lovell, Stoneham, Stow, or Sweden, Maine and surrounding areas.
