Not just a great valley, but a shrine to human foresight, the strength of granite, the power of glaciers, the persistence of life, and the tranquility of the High Sierra. First protected in 1864, Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more. This position examines the breeding patterns of the federally threatened Yosemite toad. This toad thrives in the park’s high elevation ponds, and the intern will need some hiking and camping experience and ability to work in a remote wilderness setting with a small team. Each week, toad surveys will be conducted for two days and two days will be spent in the office entering and summarizing data. Between surveys, the intern will camp overnight.
