Summer Swim Guide interns sought

Sound Rivers is in search of a few good interns for this summer’s Swim Guide program.

“We’re looking for somebody who’s interested in working with people, exploring nature and improving people’s understanding of water quality,” said Sound Rivers Environmental Projects Coordinator Clay Barber.

The three paid internships offer opportunities in the lab and in the field, working with volunteers to provide weekly water-quality updates from nearly 50 sites in the Neuse and Tar river basins.

“We sample from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and we usually get started a couple of weeks before so we can be a little flexible with student schedules,” Clay said.

The internships are offered through the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation and East Carolina University’s SECU Public Fellow Internship.
