Seasonal Land Steward
Patchen Miller Internship
The Patchen Miller Internship embraces the science, stewardship and sense of community involved in land conservation. A Patchen Miller intern has the unique opportunity to work in the conservation field while gaining valuable experience with a nonprofit organization. A modest stipend of $2,500 will be awarded. Internship length is variable but should generally incorporate the equivalent of 185-200 hours of work.
In 2023 the Patchen Miller Internship will be focused on UVLT’s food pantry gardens at Brookmead Conservation Area in Norwich, VT and Up on the Hill in Charlestown, NH. UVLT also has a garden space at Brookmead dedicated to growing food and seed for the Abenaki Land Link project which is part of the food security work of Abenaki Helping Abenaki, a nonprofit organization of the Nulhegan Abenaki Tribe.
Other Internship Opportunities at UVLT
We welcome student interns who assist with easement stewardship, conduct research, organize land trust activities and help us conserve land. Internships may be arranged on an individual basis where a candidate’s interests match specific organizational needs and goals of the Upper Valley Land Trust. Generally such interns are paid by third-party funding secured by the intern themselves, or work pro-bono in exchange for the professional experience gained, or for credit at an academic institution. If you are interested in offering your services to UVLT on this basis please contact us with a description of your interests and availability together with a resume or letter of introduction.
