Hubbard Fellowship Open for Applications NOW!

Please forward this to anyone you think might be interested:

Between now and September 30, 2019, we are accepting applications for the next class of Hubbard Fellows. The year-long Claire M. Hubbard Young Leaders in Conservation Fellowship Program is designed to help recent college graduates gain comprehensive experience. That includes a healthy dose of land management and restoration work, as well as data collection, outreach, marketing, fundraising, conservation planning, and more. In addition, each Fellow designs and carries out an independent project to dive deeper into a subject they are interested in. The Fellows are based at The Nature Conservancy’s Platte River Prairies, just south of Wood River, Nebraska, and housing is provided at that site. The position runs from February 2020 through January 2021.

Our 2019 Fellows, Chelsea Forehead and Mary Parr. This could be you!

The Fellowship is set up differently than most internships and other short-term positions, which tend to focus on a fairly narrow set of responsibilities and opportunities. Fellows fix fence, conduct prescribed fires, control invasive plants, harvest seeds, and help with all other land stewardship responsibilities. In addition, however, they attend conferences, planning and strategy sessions, budget meetings, and chapter board meetings, and are encouraged to participate actively as full time staff members of The Nature Conservancy during their year with us.

You can read more about this opportunity in this PDF brochure and apply at Search for “Hubbard” or job #47950 to find the job description and application instructions. Come join us in Nebraska, get involved in innovative and important conservation work, and build your future!
