Internship opportunity at the Forest Guild
The Forest Guild welcomes college or graduate students to work on forest related issues in New Mexico. We will offer two paid 8 week internships based out of our Santa Fe office tailored to a student's interests and schedule. Past interns have assisted the Forest Guild staff in a variety of projects including community forestry, national policy, ecological monitoring, and youth training initiatives.
The Forest Guild, a national organization of foresters and allied natural resource professionals, is dedicated to practicing and promoting values-based forestry. The Guild has 700 members, over half of whom are professionals who manage, collectively, 42 million acres of forest land in the United States and Canada. These members include foresters who work for small and medium-size companies, state land managers who oversee forest operations on large ownerships, foresters who manage lands for investment companies, and consulting professionals who advise and assist private landowners. The Guild's National Office and the Southwest Regional Office are located in Santa Fe, NM. The Guild maintains regional offices in Maine and North Carolina.
