Application Forum

The Baker Resources Coalition (BRC)[2] is seeking three high school students for its intern program this summer. This is an opportunity to explore different facets of natural resource management. You will work on a variety of real-life projects that land managers need done; gain insights into the roles our natural resources serve in meeting the needs of our communities and learn practical skills in forest, watershed, and wildlife management.  For each project you will work under the direction of a landowner, manager or specialist who will share his/her knowledge, skills, and most of all – their love for the out-of-doors.  

If selected for this internship you will be expected to attend an orientation meeting on Friday, June 10th at which you will be briefed on the work schedule and the projects you will be working on, including the project locations, host’s expectations, your work schedule, etc.  You must provide your own transportation to each project site. You will be expected to arrive on time at each project, and be ready to work hard, learn and have fun.  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call/email Steve Edwards, Co-Chair of Baker Resources Coalition at 541 519 4131 or prxs@me.com 

Please forward a PDF copy of your signed application via email to Steve Edwards at: prxs@me.com.  Deadline for submissions is Tuesday, May 17, 2022.  Interviews will be schedule on Friday, May 20.
