GIS internship

TreeFolks' Reforestation Team is looking for a GIS intern this summer to help with data management, map making, and SOP writing. Data for reforestation services is currently separated by year, so we need someone that can clean it up, compile it into a cohesive whole, and export it for education and research purposes. Internship start date: ASAP. Internship duration options: May 20th-30th, Mondays in June/July, or a combination. This is a paid internship ($8/hr). To apply, send resume and cover letter to xxx-xxx-xxxx
