I just found out what my first stop will be. I'm going to Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City. Me and another Student Conservation Association intern will be working on the urban greenway, weeding out invasives, tagging trees, restoring native prairie and woodland habitats. There's also a native tree nursery which provides street and greenway trees. The expenses are paid so thats exciting, however I likely won't be making much money. Thats to be expected with any environmental work, though. It should be interesting to do restoration work in an urban setting, although from the aerial photos it looks pretty developed. It should also be interesting to work as a civilian on an air force base, especially if I end up living on base.
