We currently have one temporary position and one contract position available:
1. Legal Intern: We have legal internships available full-time or part-time year round. A legal internship with us will provide a wide spectrum of experience that will transfer to future environmental-related work opportunities. Legal interns work under the close direction and supervision of our Advocacy and Public Policy Coordinator. Work will include legal research and writing, advocacy and policy work, field investigations, and stakeholder meetings. Experience and/or course work in environmental law, water resources, the Clean Water Act, and land use is recommended. This is an unpaid internship. Benefits include flexible schedule and option for working remotely.
Interested applicants should email a resume, cover letter, and writing sample to Ashley Short at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include “Legal Internship Application” in the title of the email.
2. Stormdrain Mural Artist: Tualatin Riverkeepers and the City of Tualatin seek artists to design and paint sidewalk mural(s) in Tualatin, Oregon. The goal of these sidewalk mural(s) is to raise awareness of stormdrains as a connection to Tualatin River water quality.
This artwork will work as a bilingual educational tool to remind the public that stormdrains drain directly to the waterways we use in our everyday life as drinking water and for recreation. Stormdrains connect urban areas to creeks, streams, and the Tualatin River in our community through a system of pipes, drains, and culverts. They are located along streets and next to sidewalks and collect stormwater from the surrounding impervious surfaces and direct it to nearby waterways. Stormdrains often blend into the surrounding urban infrastructure and are often forgotten about. Our goal of this project is to bring awareness of these important urban features and the role they play in water quality.
Selected artists will receive a commission of $750 and all materials and supplies will be supplied.
Designs are due by 5pm on June 14th, 2019. Selected artists will be notified by June 21st, 2019. Mural installation will take place in the summer of 2019. Click here for instructions on submitting a proposal and for full project description.
