This year Clallam Marine Resources Committee is offering five summer internships and one longer-termed internship.
The duration of the summer internships is 80 hours at $15 per hour, to be completed between June 18-Aug. 20, 2018. Interns will work closely with MRC members on one of several projects, including helping organize and conduct green crab trapping and removal efforts in Sequim Bay and adjacent areas.
Other summer internship projects include: organizing and participating in kayak-based kelp surveys at three locations along the Strait of Juan de Fuca; helping organize and participate in educational outreach events to recreational crab fishers; leading stewardship efforts at West Elwha Beach, and help organize and participating in surveys of the Pigeon Guillemot breeding colonies, including coordination of the volunteers.
The duration of the longer-termed internship is 160 hours and $15 per hour, to be completed between June 1-Sept. 30. The intern will primarily help with educational outreach to recreational crabbers in Clallam County, coordinate the outreach events at county boat ramps, and instruct volunteers and the educational outreach summer intern.
