Wetland Learners Internship Application

The Wetland Learners Program is a multi-partner endeavor aimed at developing a range of personal and community relationships with wetlands. The program revolves around providing field experiences for elementary students. Post-secondary students take part by serving as field instructors. Planning and carrying out a focused educational activity requires background content research, developing a teaching strategy, preparing instructional materials, and communicating with & orchestrating a group activity. To do these things requires core professional skills: leadership, scholarship, and showmanship. During the 2007/2008 academic year, Baker Wetlands (south of Lawrence) will be used for field trips. Interns are expected to attend 2 planning meetings (abt 1.5 hrs each), spend time preparing their activity (abt 3 hrs), and take part in at least 3 field events (abt 3 hrs each). Interns will be compensated $50 for each field event worked. We have a modest budget to purchase necessary materials and supplies.
