  • SAN JUAN NATIONAL FOREST AND FOUR CORNERS FEDERAL LAND INTERN PROGRAM AWARD

    The Four Corners Federal Lands Internship Program (FLIP) connects regional college students and recent graduates with resource managers to gain the knowledge and hands on skills of working directly with a federal agency. Whether interns participate in natural, recreation, or cultural resource management, the goal of the program is to better prepare the next generation of agency personnel. Mountain Studies Institute (MSI) provides FLIP support and training.

     

    The San Juan National Forest and its partners received the U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Regional Forester’s Honor Award in April of 2015 for launching The Four Corners Federal Lands Internship Program.
