Heritage Program
The Plumas National Forest (Mt. Hough Ranger District, Quincy CA, duty station) is advertising one internship opportunity in the Heritage Resources Program (May 31 – August 19, 2016).  The intern will receive archaeological training and hands-on experience in field and office settings.  The intern will be a member of an archaeological crew conducting field surveys in post-fire restoration project areas. Students also will receive training and experience documenting survey results.  This work will require physical exertion and often will be performed in a forest environment (e.g., interns will be expected to lift heavy equipment at times, stand for long periods, walk over rough, uneven or rocky surfaces, with recurring bending, stooping, and reaching). This is a full-time (40 hours per week) paid internship working with post-fire restoration crews on the Plumas National Forest.  Student interns will be employed by the Foundation for California Community Colleges during this internship opportunity on the national forest ($11.00 per hour). A valid driver license and clean driving record are required for this internship opportunity.
