Accepting Applications for Dr. Marc Taylor Interns and Youth Conservation Corps
PRWC is accepting applications from undergraduate and graduate students pursuing environmental careers for its Dr. Marc Taylor Internship position. This prestigious environmental student internship was established in 2013 in memory of PRWC’s cofounder, Dr. Taylor (1937-2012). In addition to stewarding environmental resources at the local, state, and national level, Dr. Taylor was particularly eager to foster the same passion in those preparing to be the stewards of the future.
PRWC is also accepting applications to hire Youth Conservation Corps Members for the 2021 summer season.
