CalTroutís second annual Eastern Sierra Wild & Native Trout Internship - 2009/05/04 14:03 Dear All,

Attached is an announcement for CalTroutís second annual Eastern Sierra Wild and Native Trout Internship. This internship provides a great opportunity for someone looking for hands-on and practical experience in the fisheries conservation field. It is also a great way for those launching a career in natural resources to connect with CT, and partnering agency staff working in the region.

If possible, I would like to ask you all to distribute the announcement as widely as possible to friends, colleagues etc. if and when you are able.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you and have a wonderful weekend.
