For nearly 80 years, SEFS students have been putting down roots at Pack Forest, helping to shape the woods for future generations. This Spring Break, you can leave your own mark by taking part in the annual spring planting, March 20 to 24, as a Pack Forest intern. After all, why veg when you can plant?!
While staying in rustic cabins at Pack Forest—just down the road from Mount Rainier—you’ll get to roll up your sleeves and work on forest establishment, including planting, regeneration surveys and survey reports. Your housing (and some food) will be covered, there’s a kitchen at your disposal, you’ll earn a $200 stipend, and one course credit is also available. It’s a week of hard work and hands-on learning, and also a whole lot of fun as you explore the gorgeous 4,300 acres of Pack Forest. It’s an unforgettable experience!
The internship is open to undergraduate and graduate students. To apply, send an email expressing your interest to Professor Greg Ettl as soon as possible, and no later than Sunday, February 26!
