Quinney College of Natural Resources Summer Internship Program

The Quinney College of Natural Resources partners with the United States Forest Service, Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, Utah Forestry, Fire and State Lands, National Parks and Non-Profit agencies to provide valuable professional experience to students during the summer. This program is an integral part of our college and helps students begin building their professional experience as soon as their freshman year.

What the students are saying....The USGS/TNC Moab internship was definitely the best field work experience I’ve ever had. Not only were all the people incredibly motivated and fun to work with, but made sure that I got what I wanted out of the internship and that I knew what the data was being used for. I was able to work on so many different projects and see what large scale research looks like at each step of the research process. I learned so many valuable skills both in the field and in the office. I also got to live in one of the most incredible and beautiful places in the world.   ~Hannah Johnson
