This fall ALPINE, in conjunction with the Harvard College Conservation Society, will host a career conference for undergraduate and graduate students interested in pursuing careers in diverse disciplines within the field of conservation. The conference will take place on the Harvard campus in Cambridge, MA and will be open to students from throughout New England. Registration is free and refreshments and lunch will be provided. Space will be limited so it is important that students register to be included in a very full day of events. Students can register here.
The event will feature a variety of panels and speakers in areas related to land conservation including, conservation finance, law, international conservation, as well as technology, communications and research in conservation. There will also be networking opportunities for students to connect with leaders and representatives of the major conservation organizations from around the region who will be attending the conference with job and internship opportunities and to learn more about the conservation fields. The conference is aimed at providing college students interested in learning more about conservation with the opportunity to meet a broad range of conservation professionals.
