The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Northeast Region encompasses 13 states from Maine to Virginia. About 70 million people, nearly a quarter of the nation’s population, live within this area where the Service’s nearly 1,000 employees work in the regional headquarters, field offices, national wildlife refuges or fish hatcheries.

Part of the U.S. Department of the Interior, the Service conserves, protects, and enhances fish and wildlife and their habitats for the benefit of present and future generations. Service biologists contribute to the health of our environment — and consequently our quality of life — by protecting and restoring important habitat, safeguarding endangered species, minimizing environmental contamination, and restoring fish populations.

To find out more information about the many opportunities for Middlebury students to be involved with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service come to the INFO SESSION from 1-2pm on Thursday, January 29th in the CCI Career Library in  Adirondack House. A representative from the FWS will inform students about FWS job and internship opportunities, will go over the USAJobs portal and how to construct federal resumes!  Come one, come all! Don’t miss out!
