Biohabitats, a firm specializing in the application of ecology to restore ecosystems, conserve habitat, and regenerate the natural systems that sustain all life on Earth, seeks a dynamic, driven college student to join our team as an ecological restoration construction intern. Understanding how restoration projects are constructed is critical for any engineer trying to design restoration projects. We seek to provide invaluable experience for an engineering student interested in river engineering and ecological restoration.
The internship will occur over the summer of 2018 (exact dates will be negotiated after selection). The intern will work 32-40 hours per week with Biohabitats’ Cascadia Bioregion office, located in Portland, OR. Most of the intern’s time will be spent in the field on active construction sites in the Portland Metro area. The intern will be responsible for providing their own transportation.
