Free Store Staff

We are looking for someone to work on our Free Store which is a weekly ‘store’ where students can take anything they want for free, with the end goal of reducing consumption.

Real Food Challenge Staff

Join a team of student peers who are making the Real Food Challenge a reality on campus. In this position, you will plan events, conduct action research, coach campus dining on new food products to bring into the dining hall, and work with our local farmers. This is a super fun job that will help you develop professional skills in policy, education, and general advocacy….all while contributing to a national movement geared at getting ‘real’ food to the masses! 4-7 hours/week during the academic year

Recycling Tracking Staff

Are you passionate about recycling and good with spreadsheets?  The FLC Environmental Center is looking for an intern to help us advance the recycling program at the college.The Fort Lewis College Environmental Center is excited to announce its 13th Annual REEL Environmental Film Experience on Thursday, October 23rd at the Smiley Building.  This year, the REEL Environmental Film Experience will highlight an issue that is near and dear to all of us here in the Animas Watershed: the importance—economically, ecologically, recreationally, and soulfully—of vibrant, healthy rivers. To explore this topic, the EC will be showcasing the internationally acclaimed (and Telluride-produced!) film, DamNation: www.damnationfilm.com. This cinematically jaw-dropping film inspires us to take positive action through a surprisingly fascinating and moving lens: the removal of obsolete dams. DamNation navigates the tricky intersection between environmental health, social well-being and economic necessity. Through the story of freeing rivers, we are given the opportunity to watch a fundamental shift in how our society perceives the natural world – from a resource that must be controlled, to one that exists as a dynamic and invaluable partner.
