The Haw River Assembly is a 501(c)(3) non-profit citizens’ group founded in 1982 to restore and protect the Haw River and Jordan Lake, and to build a watershed community that shares this vision. Our goals are to promote environmental education, conservation and pollution prevention; to speak as a voice for the river in the public arena; and to put into peoples’ hands the tools and the knowledge they need to be effective guardians of the river.
Join us in our fight to leave our river cleaner than when you started! We have several fall, spring and summer, semester-long internships for college students. We have both in-person opportunities and completely remote that will allow students who are all over our watershed to gain the communication and technical skills it takes to protect a river and environment in their future careers and personal lives. Check out some brief descriptions below and apply today for the semester of your choosing!
