Each school year promising high school students from the Nucla and Norwood High Schools are chosen to participate in the Real Science Summer Internship. The interns spend six summer weeks working with local area professionals in the environmental field, gaining valuable experience that will aid them in their college aspirations and career options.
Students work with biologists within the Colorado Division of Wildlife, Bureau of Land Management, US Forest Service, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, with organizations such as The Nature Conservancy, Steeprock Jointery, San Miguel County Weed Program, and at farms such as Indian Ridge and Tomten Farms. The internships are based around the Norwood, Nucla and Naturita areas. Past interns have assisted with the Uncompahgre Puma Project, Owl Research Project, Tamarisk Eradication Project, Western Tent Caterpillar Infestation, Natural Resource Conservation, Archaeology, Range Monitoring and Wildfire Rehabilitation Projects. The interns are paid a stipend for their work.
