Description

The Coastal Watershed Council (CWC) is a non-profit agency whose mission is to preserve and protect coastal watersheds through community stewardship, education and monitoring. CWC founded the San Lorenzo River Alliance, a coalition made up of environmental organizations, local government and partners in arts and business organizations, to transform Santa Cruz County’s relationship with its largest watershed from one of apathy and disdain to one of respect, recreation, and restoration. Our office is located in the beautiful Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor.

At the intersection of writing, design and action comes outreach. CWC’s Watershed Outreach Intern will learn how to implement communications strategy to develop marketing materials, build social networks and create a constituency of people who care about the environment and their watersheds. The Watershed Outreach Intern will have the opportunity to research and implement unique and innovative outreach methods and to learn the ropes of traditional outreach, such as publishing articles in local news sources. Watershed Outreach Interns will learn how to use tools like Wordpress for website management and Adobe Creative Suite for outreach materials.

Apply today to shape the way your community protects and preserves their local resources and get the skills you need for future employment and to generate campaigns of your own.
