VOLUNTEERING

Volunteering provides individuals with an opportunity to work shoulder-to-shoulder with the Schuylkill Conservation District. Volunteer opportunities are available year-round and arranged based on current projects and activities.

Currently recruiting ASSOCIATE DIRECTORS

Associate directors are officially appointed by the district board of directors. Associate directors do not vote on board decisions, but their knowledge and experience can be great assets for decision-making information and in assisting with conservation district programs. Associate directors increase the number of people working on district programs and make it possible to establish an effective committee structure to oversee various programs and operational functions. Being an associate director provides individuals the opportunity to test their talents and determine for themselves the kind of contributions they can make to district programs. As is the case with directors, associate directors may be paid mileage and out-of-pocket expenses as authorized by the board.

COLLEGE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

This internship provides students with experience in all aspects of the Schuylkill Conservation District. Interns will work on District programs, including: watershed restoration and planning, conservation planning, water quality monitoring, farmland preservation, education and outreach, erosion and sediment control, parks and recreation, and office administration.

An internship is a great way to network, meet professionals in natural resources conservation, and gain experience in a work environment. The SCD is looking for interns that are not only wanting work experience, but valuable learning opportunities that help develop lifelong skills as well as gaining a deeper understanding of concepts learned in classes through hands-on applications.

Internships are generally offered in the summer (May-August).  Other time periods can be requested and arranged on a case-by-case basis.  Interns can earn academic credits if arranged through a school advisor.
