Coho Life Cycle Monitoring Internship

Apply today for a Life Cycle Monitoring internship!

We are seeking interns to assist with our salmon surveys this winter and spring! This time of year, interns will be monitoring rotary screw traps for juvenile fish that we track and follow throughout the watershed. Must have a flexible schedule; two free days/week is ideal. Must have transportation to field sites 20 minutes outside of town.

Why complete an internship with CoosWA?

The Coos Watershed Association is a dynamic watershed council working to improve habitat in the Coos basin for coho salmon. A crucial part in working to recover this species is the Life Cycle Monitoring (LCM) program that collects data on the coho population in the Coos watershed. The long-time LCM program has largely been successful through the sustained support of interns. In addition to being a vital component of the LCM program, internships offer applicable work experience and references for beginning a career in the natural resource field.

Choose a path

We offer two pathways here for our interns. Our Academic Credit Opportunity offers college students an opportunity to turn their work experience into academic credit for their hours worked on the LCM project. Our Work Experience Opportunity is for any growing professional looking to gain experience in this field of study. Read more about each pathway below.
