Community Program Intern
The Community Program Internship is designed to support NSEA’s Program Team by facilitating
community and student opportunities throughout Whatcom County.
NSEA educates, inspires, and engages the community to take action to keep wild salmon here for future
generations. Achieving our mission requires the collective work, involvement, and commitment of our
community. At NSEA we work every day to expand the consciousness of our local community to include
our streams and the salmon that do and could inhabit them. We are dedicated to providing Whatcom
County residents with hands-on experience in restoration and the tools to act as stewards to salmon
habitat. We believe that when we begin to understand ourselves as citizens of our watersheds, the vision of
sustainable wild salmon runs can become a reality. Our growing community of volunteers, students, and
donors provide momentum as we work together to ensure that Whatcom County will be home to wild
salmon for generations to come. For more information, please visit our webpage: www.n-sea.org.
