NWS Internship Announcement!

Surfrider Water Quality Stewardship Intern Announcement:

It’s that time of year again! NWS Surfrider is looking for motivated interns to help collect water quality samples and educate the public on water quality issues at Larrabee State Park for the summer of 2014. This internship is a great experience for those looking to be outside and learn about marine environmental education, outreach, policy, and science and has a lot of potential to expand to other related Surfrider projects.
