Former Center for Habitat Restoration/Bio 92 intern Amy Ellevold just sent me this letter:
"I am working with Sutro Stewards and wanted to let you know that we have two great internship opportunities. One of these opportunities would include working with me and the nursery manager in the native plant nursery, helping with volunteer program and assisting with propagation activities. The other opportunity is working with our conservation manager who primarily deals with planning, implementing, and maintaing our conservation sites. Although there are two separate positions the interns will get to spend time working in both areas.  When I heard about these internships CCSF was the first place I thought of because you gave me my first internship working with plants. It set such a wonderful tone for the rest of my college experience!"
