Blumenstein Internship

Charlie Blumenstein Water and Wildlife Conservation Internship

Charlie Blumenstein graduated from Colorado College in 1996 with a major in biology. He was passionate about the environment and conservation of water resources. Charlie credited his informal, out-of-classroom, extra-curricular, field experiences with his decision to become a hydrogeologist and to devote his professional life to the improvement of our water resources. After Charlie’s death in May 2003, his family and friends established a fund in his memory to recognize his passion and commitment to conservation and the outdoors through this internship.

Each year one intern is chosen for a paid summer internship position at The Nature Conservancy Silver Creek Preserve in Picabo, Idaho. The application process will begin in early spring each year with decisions expected by the end of Block 7.

The application process for the 2014 Blumenstein Summer Internship has closed. Feel free to refer to these documents to learn more about the opportunity and begin preparing for the next summer.
