Restoration Intern – Living Arroyos
The Alameda County Resource Conservation District (ACRCD) is a non-regulatory special district that works to support local preservation/conservation/restoration efforts on private and public lands. Managed by the ACRCD, Living Arroyos is a multi-agency partnership that includes the Zone 7 Water Agency and the cities of Dublin, Livermore, and Pleasanton. Since 2013, Living Arroyos has worked to maintain and enhance the urban streams and streamside habitats of the Livermore-Amador valley. The program creates beautiful, safe, natural areas that
serve the needs of people and other living things through engaging the community in volunteer clean-up and planting events led by the Program Manager and Living Arroyos Restoration Interns.
Under the direction of the Living Arroyos Program Manager, Restoration Interns learn real-world stream management techniques that complement in-class learning. Interns are given hands-on responsibility for implementing habitat enhancement and restoration projects for the City of Livermore and the Zone 7 Water Agency through the Alameda County Resource Conservation District. As well as creek cleanups through the Adopt a Creek Spot program for the cities of Dublin, Livermore, and Pleasanton, Interns will also interact with and guide volunteers, gaining leadership skills and reinforcing their own knowledge by teaching others.
