Overview

Opportunity Description

Are you a tree hugger?

The vegetation team at Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in northern New Hampshire is looking for three enthusiastic, physically fit, outdoor oriented students to join our team from 28 May – 16 Aug 2019. The job entails 39 hour work week in the woods and includes housing in a cooperative setting.

This season, our main focus will be re-surveying tree sizes in two long-term studies: Watershed 5 (whole-tree harvested in winter 1983-4) and Birdline demography (trees followed as individuals since 1981). Lots of time in the forest with surprises and mysteries to solve in these re-measures.

We will also be engaging in Citizen Science on sugar maple regeneration in forests of NH with the Society for Protection of NH Forests, the amount of time spent will depend on the success of our current Engaged Cornell grant application.
