The Conservation Intern (CI) and Fellow (CF)  works throughout Montana and surrounding states with a selected partner agency referred to as a host site. They make a measurable difference in local and state conservation efforts while gaining valuable hands-on professional skills in natural resources. 


“This experience was everything I thought it would be. I was able to develop independently, as well as with the encouragement of my site hosts. I learned valuable skills in natural resource management and recreational management and was able to put those skills to use. It was a deeply enriching experience and I can honestly say it was one of my best decisions to join this program.”
