MN DNR Seeking Watercraft Inspection Interns

 (Minnesota DNR)

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is seeking intern watercraft inspectors for the 2016 boating season. Inspectors are stationed at public accesses on lakes and rivers infested with aquatic invasive species such as Eurasian watermilfoil and zebra mussels.

“We’re looking for enthusiastic young adults interested in doing important environmental conservation work,” said Adam Doll, DNR watercraft inspection program coordinator.

Watercraft inspectors inform and educate the public about aquatic invasive species and the threat they pose to Minnesota waters. Inspectors make sure boaters are following Minnesota’s “Clean, Drain, Dispose” invasive species laws. They also inspect watercraft to prevent potentially infested boats from entering the water. Other duties may include assisting with access posting, conducting invasive species plant removal and other natural resource projects.

Applicants must have a valid Minnesota driver’s license, be enrolled in a natural resources or related program and be eligible to receive college credit for the position.
