WQLM Interns on Green Roof

The Water Quality and Land Management Intern Program strives to place students with fields of study they are interested in pursuing as a career. The program accepts candidates from all backgrounds and schools including the University of West Florida, the University of Florida at Gainesville and the University of Florida-Milton Campus, among others.
