MCC’s Conservation Fellow (CF) program provides opportunities for recent college graduates to gain professional experience in a conservation-related field. Conservation Fellows participate in an extended and more in-depth term of service - 6 Months - at partnering federal/state agencies, nonprofits, tribal offices, and other community-based conservation organizations across the region.
The Conservation Fellow program is designed to make a measurable difference in local conservation efforts while strengthening the professional experience of our members. Fellows are placed individually with a partner organization and work under the direct supervision of the Host Site Supervisor, while coordinating with MCC staff to ensure successful completion of the program objectives. CFs serve on a variety of projects including GPS and GIS projects, river ranger patrols, wildlife/biology projects, habitat enhancement/restoration/planning, data collection and analysis, stakeholder outreach, education and engagement, trails/backcountry projects, research, and invasive species management.
