American Rivers protects wild rivers, restores damaged rivers, and conserves clean water for people and nature. Since 1973, American Rivers has protected and restored more than 150,000 miles of rivers through advocacy efforts, on-the-ground projects, and the annual America’s Most Endangered Rivers® campaign. Headquartered in Washington, DC, American Rivers has offices across the country and more than 200,000 members, supporters, and volunteers.
The Water Conservation Office (WCO) is part of the Public Utilities Department of the Athens-Clarke County Unified Government. The WCO mission is to promote a culture of sustainability within the local community as it pertains to our water resources through conservation and education. This goal is accomplished through school programs, outreach within the community, annual events, and water conservation workshops.
Interns are responsible for preparing and presenting educational programs, aiding with tours of the water treatment facilities, assisting with community events, monitoring and posting on social media (including blogging), and other activities that support the WCO mission. The internship program is designed to provide each intern with a flexible learning experience that will include an independent project and training in environmental education curricula. Interns are supervised by the WCO graduate assistant.
