For the summer of 2020, we have a great plan for students to help us learn about the river, so we can better restore and protect it!
We have a project that would be great for a young biologist looking to gain some experience with collecting samples, assessing river banks, identifying turtle habitat, and learning about the streams that come into the main Cornwallis River! This will be for the position of “Ecology Intern”, and will be a 10 week position based with a local environmental group and their team of students and researchers (one of two potential offices).
The second project is for a student who knows a bit about mapping- this project will be for a young person with experience in GIS (Geographic Information Systems) who can collect existing maps and layers, create a storymap (Check out this storymap!), and help with research on wetlands, agricultural land and pesticides. This will be for the position of “GIS Intern”, and will be a 10 week position based at the Centre for Ocean and Geographic Sciences in Lawrencetown.
Please check out these job postings for all the details, and see if one would be a good fit for you or someone you know!

We are thrilled to work with students each summer – it gives young people a chance to gain experience in their field, and it gives us a chance to learn more about the river! We hope to hear from you soon!
