Heritage interns' primary duty will be to conduct inventories within project areas for historic and prehistoric resources. Supervision, training, and technical equipment (e.g. radio, gps, and compass) will be provided. Inventories are generally conducted four days a week (typically four 10-hour shifts) in semi-rural and remote forest locations. Interns will work in pairs, with Forest Service personnel or independently, often in steep and difficult terrain, and occasionally in inclement conditions. Duties also may include helping to open, close, or repair historic sites, collect site data in the Granite Chief Wilderness, organize and evaluate site records, monitor for grazing impacts at heritage sites, and other tasks as assigned. Interns will gain experience in the application of academic theories and principles to practical work situations, including heritage resource management and the interaction between other resources such as fire, timber, recreation, mining, engineering, soils, hydrology, wildlife, and grazing. Interns will understand how their field data is utilized and affects heritage resource management decisions. Skills in GIS, GPS, photography, data recording and site sketching are desirable but not critical. Interns will be provided ample training opportunities during the field season, appropriate to the job and position.
