NEIWPCC is a regional commission that helps the states of the Northeast preserve and advance water quality. We engage and convene water quality professionals and other interested parties from New England and New York to collaborate on water, wastewater, and environmental science challenges across the regions, ecosystems, and areas of expertise.
The Hudson River Estuary Program helps people enjoy, protect, and revitalize the Hudson River and its valley. Created in 1987 through the Hudson River Estuary Management Act, the program focuses on the tidal Hudson and adjacent watershed from the federal dam at Troy to the Verrazano Narrows in New York City. The mission of the Estuary Program is built around six benefits:
The Hudson River Estuary Program is committed to promoting Justice, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEIJ) in our organization and our work with stakeholders and partners. The Estuary Program acknowledges the interconnectedness of social and environmental risks and strive to strengthen our learning, dialogue and engagement around building a more inclusive and equitable future. This internship will assist the program in making greater progress in fulfilling this vision.
The successful candidate will assist with communications, outreach and engagement on climate change and diversity, equity, inclusion and justice (DEIJ) as it relates to watershed management strategies for the estuary. The intern will report to the Estuary Program’s team leader for climate change projects. These include assisting the state’s Climate Smart Communities certification program and Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act. The position will be based in the NYS DEC Region 3 office in New Paltz, NY with a substantial component of the work being performed remotely.
