Scientists, educators, and watershed restoration professionals are working together to create long-lasting and positive impacts on waterways.
Our interns assist with research and other mission-focused work and gain valuable professional experience and networking opportunities.
This is the 50th year that the Stroud Center has welcomed interns to help develop their skills and give them memorable experiences in their fields.
Without any mouth parts, fully mature adult mayflies, called spinners, cannot eat, and so most live but a single day.
