YOUR POSITION WITH TNC
The Nature Conservancy’s mission is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. We envision a world where nature and people thrive together. Through our Urban Conservation program, we are working towards building healthy cities in North America, including Wilmington, DE. The Nature Conservancy (TNC) in partnership with First State National Historical Park (FRST) is a member of the Alliance for Watershed Education (AWE), a coalition of 23 environmental education centers focused on constituency building and stewardship of the Delaware River Watershed. The Alliance, now in its fourth season, is again seeking to hire young people at each center for a 12-week summer fellowship designed to advance their collective impact of improving water quality across the watershed.
The Delaware River Watershed Fellow will serve as an ambassador for TNC and FRST by engaging the Wilmington community, inspiring watershed stewardship, helping to reach new and underserved audiences and achieve our goals of diversity equity and inclusion. By the end of the 12 weeks of service, Fellows will have become local watershed ambassadors in their community and will have introduced many new people to their local trails and waterways, as well as the steps they can take to help restore and protect the Delaware River watershed.
