Being a student at a state university, I have been given many amazing opportunities in the biology world.
My particular interest in stream ecology forced me to look for opportunities outside of the university to get the experience and exposure I wanted.
Luckily, I live in the Ozarks where we love our water. While attending field trips to many of our local water quality contributors, such as the wastewater treatment plant and tours of urban streams, I asked about groups that may take a volunteer or intern.
The response always included praises for the James River Basin Partnership (JRBP).
As fate would have it, a group at Missouri State made it known to me that JRBP was looking for an intern. I quickly contacted them for information about the position.
