    Klamath Bird Observatory www.KlamathBird.org  invites applications for one (1) bird banding assistant internship position openings. We are seeking a highly motivated individual to participate in our long-term landbird monitoring program in the Klamath-Siskiyou Bioregion of southern Oregon and northern California during the breeding season – 1 May through 31 July, 2018.
