What is the Internship Program?

Conservation Corps Newfoundland and Labrador's Internship Program provides non-profit organizations, community groups and municipalities an opportunity to host an intern on a project focusing on environmental or cultural heritage conservation.

Internships allows for meaningful, paid employment opportunities for recent graduates, while supporting important cultural and environmental initiatives in communities throughout the province.


In 2017, CCNL hosted two interns, Natalya Dawe and Alyssa Hunter. These interns worked in partnership with the Manuel's River Hibernia Interpretation Centre and Mi’kmaq Alsumk Mowimsikik Koqoey Association (MAMKA). Read below for descriptions of their projects.

Interested in participating in this program as a community partner or as an intern participant? For further information on the Internship Program, please contact Megan Stuckless at 729-7279 or

Natalya Dawe

Natalya worked with the Manuel's River Hibernia Interpretation Centre. Natalya assists with the delivery of educational programs, including school programs, guided tours and special events. She also assists the Manuels River Natural Heritage Society to research and develop curriculum-based content for school programs that features the Centre’s stream table, with a particular focus on fluvial processes, flood control and watershed management.


Alyssa Hunter

The greater part of Alyssa's time working with CCNL and the Mi’kmaq Alsumk Mowimsikik Koqoey Association (MAMKA) at Qalipu First Nation’s Natural Resources Division was spent focusing on a Wetland Delineation and Classification project. This project was largely field based. Throughout Alyssa's time working on the project, she assisted with delineation and classification of two wetland sites on the Port au Port Peninsula, and completed the delineation of a wetland in Stephenville Crossing. She also spent time on other projects, including Green Crab mitigation, Eelgrass monitoring, as well as American Eel monitoring, each of which consisted of a combination of office and field work.



CCNL’s Internship Program has operated successfully for 10 years, focusing on the following priorities:


Creating relevant and challenging work experiences for recent graduates of a variety of educational programs.


Involving the enhancement, restoration and sustainable development of our natural and/or cultural resources.
