The San Juan National Forest has launched the Four Corners Federal Lands Internship Program.
Partners included the National Park Service, Fort Lewis College (FLC), Mountain Studies Institute (MSI) and Southwest Conservation Corps (SCC).
The program offers college students experience in resource-management careers. Agency mentors oversee the professional development of interns during 10-week summer internships.
"We thank our partners for bringing this opportunity to the agencies and the students," says Ron Duvall, San Juan NF Administrative Officer. "We couldn't have done it without everyone's support."
Last year's interns are now exploring careers in natural resources through additional classes, advanced degrees and seasonal jobs. New interns have already been selected for this summer.
