Blumenstein Internship

Caleb Cofsky, 2016 intern, with Mrs. Sarah Blumenstein at Silver Creek

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.

Caleb Cofsky, 2016 summer intern, created this short video sharing why Silver Creek is such a phenomenal place. In the video, you will also be introduced to intern supervisor, Sunny Healey.

Each year one intern is chosen for a paid summer internship at The Nature Conservancy Silver Creek Preserve in Picabo, Idaho. The application process begins in early spring each year. Contact the Career Center for questions or more information.
