*Habitat Restoration Internships--Coal Oil Point Reserve:*

  Coal Oil Point Reserve has several paid habitat restoration 
internships available for Spring Quarter 2011.  Interns will work with 
the reserve steward, a restoration biologist, other interns and 
volunteers assisting with restoring native wetland and coastal sage 
scrub habitats.  One of the project sites is managed by Audubon, 
improving the buffers around a freshwater pond and a vernal pool. Job 
duties will include: plant propagation, seed collection, invasive weed 
control, planting natives, ecological monitoring and general site 
maintenance- watering, mulching and weeding.  The internship requires 33 
hour commitment; generally 3 hours/week on either Tues OR Friday 
mornings, and occasional Saturday workdays (April 9th, and May 14th). 
Interns receive a $300 stipend upon successful completion of the 
internship by June 3rd.

  Applicant must be a UCSB student and must be available on Tues OR 
Friday mornings from 9am-12noon, beginning the first week of classes. 
Previous restoration experience and knowledge of native plants and 
restoration ecology is a plus, but not necessary.  Positions are funded 
by the Coastal Fund.

  To apply send resume and class schedule/time availability for Spring 
Quarter to Tara Longwell at longwell at lifesci.ucsb.edu, and Darlene
