Future Leaders of Whatcom Waters (FLOW) - Internship Program
Each year, NSEA offers internships in stream restoration, scientific monitoring, environmental education, and community outreach. The reciprocal nature of the FLOW Program allows college students and recent graduates to gain valuable real-world experience and build professional experience while allowing NSEA to increase our capacity to accomplish more on-the-ground work and improve our programs. In 2017, 47 interns volunteered over 4,743 hours!
The benefits of interning with NSEA can be best explained by former Restoration Intern, Alexa Jones:
"Strengthening my leadership skills has been a major component of this experience, and I feel much more confident. I am now comfortable initiating suggestions in professional groups and feel comfortable speaking knowledgeably with the public about restoration, local watershed issues, and salmon recovery goals. "
