Lower Loup NRD Internship Program Is Initiated

March 08, 2019

Students studying natural resources or related fields will have the opportunity to apply their academic studies to on-the-job experience.  The Lower Loup Natural Resources District’s General Manager, Russell Callan, said the District’s Student Internship Program will offer on-the-job experience benefitting both the student and future employers.

Callan said that the work experience occurs in a Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Field Office, located in the LLNRD, and must be related to the student’s academic/career goals. He said positions through the LLNRD Student Internship Program are available in multiple job areas.  The trainee position acquaints the student with field application of conservation practices on privately owned land, primarily utilized for crop production, livestock grazing, and/or wildlife habitat.

The LLNRD GM said the program provides for periods of study mixed with periods of study-related employment, primarily during the breaks between college semesters. Work is under the guidance of trained NRCS employees.  Holding one of these internships can provide an advantage when applying for a full-time position within the NRCS or NRD systems. Preferred areas of study are agriculture science, agronomy, engineering, natural resources, range management, or soil science. 

There are potential positions as a Soil Conservation Technician, Soil Conservationist, or Range Management Specialist.  A full program description and application details are available here.  Application deadline is April 1, 2019.
