Hawkwatch Intern

Since 1999, LGNC has recruited a wildlife biology intern with responsibilities including the daily hawk count at Bake Oven Knob, entry of data from the count on the BirdSource website, and carrying out a research project in conjunction with the interns at nearby Hawk Mountain Sanctuary.   The hawk count intern position is available each autumn from August 15 through the end of November, and announcements and position descriptions for the position will appear here. We are currently accepting applications for the 2017 Hawkwatch Intern position.

Color of Nature Program Leaders

The goal of LGNC’s Color of Nature program is to encourage people of diverse racial/ethnic identities to enjoy nature. We train program leaders to run environmental education programs at LGNC and in their communities. Ideally, candidates are bi-lingual and are identified from among participants in our Conservation Leadership Academy summer camp. However, other candidates would be considered. Please contact Dan Kunkle at lgnc@ptd.net for more information.

Local College Internship Opportunities

We periodically partner with area colleges and universities, such as Moravian, Lehigh, and Muhlenberg, to offer internship opportunities. Please check back for the most current offerings or email lgnc@ptd.net to inquire.
