The Acadian Internship in Regional Conservation and Stewardship (Maine)

The Acadian Internship in Regional Conservation and Stewardship
Large landscape conservation training and service for the next generation of public, private and non-profit conservation leaders

The Acadian Internship is a six-week course in landscape-scale regional conservation based in Downeast Maine and southwestern New Brunswick. The course, for which academic credit can be granted by the University of Maine, is a mix of in-class lectures and field-based experiential learning. The first week at the Schoodic Educational and Research Center (SERC) – located on the coast and within Acadia National Park – involves five days of intensive classroom-based instruction by over two dozen local- to internationally-recognized experts (course-related information at http://acadianinternship.wordpress.com).

While at SERC, seminars and tutorials are held daily, including evening sessions. Faculty and field staff work directly with students who come from North America and around the globe for 6 to10 hours each day. In addition, the faculty and field staff are available for additional help before and after scheduled activities. Field manuals and readings include literature selections from academics, research texts and reports, and environmental impact assessments and planning documents are all available on the Acadian Internship website.

During the four-week internship portion of the course, students are placed with local host conservation organizations in the field and will work directly with staff from those organizations, with at least two site visits from course faculty. Student and host organization evaluations of the 2011 internship program experience were highly favorable.

Application deadline: April 6, 2012
