Thanks to the continuing support of our members and the generosity of other donors MVFN will,  for the summer of 2022,  co-fund  a paid summer student internship at the Ottawa Valley Wild Bird Care Centre (822 Cedarview Road, Nepean, ON).

The internship is for a post-secondary student living in Lanark County or in the Mississippi River watershed. This is a full-time position as an Avian Care Attendant (link to job description: Conditions of the grant require that the successful student make a presentation at the MVFN annual general meeting in May and complete an evaluation of the placement in September.

Interested students should send their resume and a cover letter to Sandra Sawers. The cover letter should mention that they are applying under the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists Grant.
