Universal Recycling Outreach —  This internship will focus on addressing the current and upcoming challenges of implementing the Universal Recycling Law in Vermont. It will involve substantial engagement with the public, as well as some in-office work.  The intern will set up a table at farmers’ markets, fairs, or other public venues to provide information about recycling, composting, and the requirements of the Universal Recycling Law.

Otter Creek Mapping Intern —  This intern would assist with field data collection along the Otter Creek primarily by paddling nearly 100 miles from Mt. Tabor to Lake Champlain. Field data collection will consist of identifying both natural and manmade features along the creek as they relate to fishing, hunting, paddling, or historic resources. The intern would help identify the appropriate data to collect as well as develop data sheets for use in a future mapping project. Some of the opportunities afforded to the intern would be to work with a variety of staff working on everything from outdoor recreation to law enforcement.

NOTE: The ultimate goal of this project is to create an Otter Creek Fishing Trail that highlights all river features, public access, and any possible points of interest to anyone boating on the Otter Creek. Once all the field data is collected, I would like to explore turning this into a semester or thesis project (Middlebury’s GIS program?) so that we could actually create the fishing trail map.  For more details, see listing on Handshake: https://middlebury.joinhandshake.com/jobs/1291553/share_preview
