New Fellowship Positions Available: Platte River Prairies, Nebraska

Attention recent college graduates from Natural Resources and Conservation programs…

I am excited to announce the new Claire M. Hubbard Young Leaders in Conservation Fellowship Program.  The program will fund two Fellowship positions with The Nature Conservancy of Nebraska.  Fellows will be based here in the Platte River Prairies, but will also spend significant time at other sites around the state and region.

Join us on the Platte River Prairies for a year you'll never forget.

The Hubbard Fellowship is designed to give recent college graduates the breadth of experience they need to qualify for a fulfilling conservation career.  As opposed to the typical post-graduate experience of bouncing from seasonal job to seasonal job for several years or more, this paid Fellowship position provides comprehensive experience across multiple facets of conservation work- all in a single year.  Fellows will participate in activities ranging from prairie restoration and prescribed fire to fundraising and marketing.  However, the Fellowship will also be individually designed to emphasize the experiences each Fellow wants or needs to prepare them for the career they want.

The Fellowship is open to graduates of undergraduate and graduate programs in natural resources, conservation biology, or related subjects.  We are looking for highly-qualified, motivated people with strong leadership and communication skills.  Applications are due March 8, 2013 and the position will begin June 1.
