Interns and volunteers

The EcoLab employs interns every semester and during the summers. Interns get hands-on experience doing ecological restoration and environmental education. These paid positions typically go to Marian University students.

There are lots of opportunities for individuals to volunteer in the EcoLab doing ecological restoration, environmental education, science outreach, or whatever your specialty might be. Volunteers are who make the EcoLab the special place it is.

We thank you all!
