The Bitterroot Wildlife Internship (BWI) program is a partnership between Ecology Project International (EPI) and MPG Ranch that offers a unique experience for high school students that combines ecological education, conservation service, and hands-on field research at MPG Ranch in Florence, Montana from June-August. Each month-long intern session will be comprised of six interns. Interns will be paired with MPG researchers to assist with ongoing research projects and complete their own related research question. EPI has offered the Bitterroot Wildlife Internship program in conjunction with MPG Ranch since 2014.
Bitterroot Wildlife Internship instructors will spend Sunday afternoon-Thursday of each week atthe ranch leading interns in completing conservation service projects (approximately 10hrs/week), conducting ecological research (approximately 16hrs/week), and learning about the Bitterroot Valley’s ecosystem (approximately 6 hrs/week). At night the group will camp out under the stars. Conservation projects on the ranch might include pulling invasive weeds, removing fencing, and gathering native seeds. Potential research involvement includes avian, soil, plant, ungulate, and insect projects. Instructors will also teach Leave No Trace awareness, guide wildlife observation, and mentor the interns in nature journaling.
