UDaily: Environmental policy internship opportunities available at DNREC

Students who are interested in making sound environmental policy have an opportunity to gain direct experience this summer through a paid internship with the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC). Organized in collaboration with the Delaware Environmental Institute, two projects are in the offing. One is focused on policy to promote the use of native plants on formerly contaminated sites that have been remediated, working with DNREC’s Site Investigation and Restoration Branch. A second project will help the Division of Fish and Wildlife harmonize the array of regulations now in place governing more than 70,000 acres of land owned and managed by the state of Delaware.
