Surfrider Foundation Internship Opportunity

photograph and document grunion runs at Goleta Beach
the nights of August 8, 9, 10, 21, 22, and 23, and
possibly September 6-9.2.
2. Park usage monitoring.  Two interns will monitor traffic
at Goleta Beach park to determine how visitors are using
the park and restaurant facilities.  Monitoring will be
conducted on at least one weekend day and one weekday
during August.3.
3. Environmental advocacy.  Two interns will organize
volunteers to contact County Supervisors and provide
support for Surfrider at the Board of Supervisors

discussed.  The meeting is presently scheduled for
Tuesday, August 22.  Interns must be available that
entire day.
Interns must be registered UCSB undergraduate students.
