Montana Audubon

Montana Audubon works at the local, state and national policy levels to protect our natural heritage.

Grassland Ecology Interns Sought

Montana Audubon is working with the Smithsonian’s National Zoological Park Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) and American Prairie Reserve to hire two grassland ecology interns for the 2018 field season. These are paid research/public outreach positions that will take place on American Prairie Reserve lands in northeastern Montana. This is a unique opportunity to learn about and study the birds and ecology of Montana’s Glaciated Plains, a landscape representing some of the most intact prairie ecosystems remaining in North America.


This internship offers a number of hands-on learning experiences including camera trap surveys of mammal communities in grassland and prairie dog colonies; vegetation surveys in pastures that differ grazers (cattle, bison, no large ungulate); bird surveys in spring and early summer; and mapping prairie dog colonies and assessing their densities. In addition the intern would assist staff in outreach and education events that convey conservation science to the general public. The intern will support staff activities associated with these ecology projects and play a significant role for the advancement of conservation science at SCBI and APR. Training for internship tasks is provided.
