For those of you following the UC Hopland Research & Extension Center's BLOG posts you know that the exciting construction of the "Rod Shippey Education and Field Lab" facility is underway. When the doors open this fall to this unique and state-of-the-art "outreach" facility we envision a long future of natural resource and ag-related interpretive displays to entertain and educate the visiting public.
Currently open until this upcoming Friday, is a search for a Student Assistant Intern who will work under the direction of the HREC director to design and create educational display materials for the new building facility. The requisition number for the search is #20120159 through: jobs.ucop.edu/applicants/ Pay is slightly over $10 per hour.
The focus will be to effectively interpret biodiversity, land and water resources, and best management practices for riparian, oak woodland, and wetland habitats in the Coast Range of Northern California, based upon 60+ years of research at HREC. The intern will develop educational materials that will assist visitors, and the public at large, to comprehend the resource values, threats, and solutions.
So, if you know any college student who might be interested in such an internship position this summer, please inform them ASAP as the application deadline is this Friday.
