The Cape Atlantic Conservation District has an on-going intern program with Stockton University. The Cape Atlantic Conservation District is now accepting applications for two (2) internship positions for the Fall 2017 semester. The interns will gain experience in the three following areas.
Stormwater Management Basin Datatbase - Candidates will be entering Hydraulic and Hydrologic Data into a uniform state-wide reporting system. The project is a partnership between the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, NJ Department of Agriculture and the local Soil Conservation Districts. The project is being undertaken to assist these agencies to determine the locations of stormwater basins to determine if they are properly functioning for water quality purposes. Field work will include onsite inspections to see previously constructed stormwater basins and basins currently under construction utilizing the most recent construction techniques.
District Education Programs - The internship will include working on various District educational programs. This may include working on District grants, presentations and public displays, and District workshops regarding pollinator and wildlife habitat projects, soil and water conservation, and other natural resource management issues. Agricultural related activities are included in the District’s overall conservation program.
Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Program - Interns will gain experience with the District’s Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Program. Some interpretation of aerial photography will be necessary. Candidates will also become familiar with reading and interpreting construction plans, specifically for drainage, grading and soil erosion and sediment control. Activities will include field inspections and hands on experience with compliance procedures. Other work will include working with District staff on various mapping projects using GIS.
This internship is a 4 credit course so applicants should be able to add 4 credits to their spring semester classes. It is anticipated that the position will require a minimum of 10-12 hours a week during the course of the semester. Each intern will receive a one-time tuition reimbursement stipend of $750.00 upon the successful completion of the internship.
Applicants should submit a resume and copy of transcript by May 1, 2017. Information may be sent via mail or e-mail. Please contact David Reilly (DavidReilly@capeatlantic.org) or Michael Kent (MichaelKent@capeatlantic.org) at the District Office if there are any questions regarding this opportunity.
