Superior Watershed Partnership will hold an information table today from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the first floor of Jamrich to answer questions students may have about the organization and current job postings on Handshake.

SWP is a local Great Lakes non-profit organization serving the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The non-profit completes a wide range of projects that benefits U.P. communities, enhances the U.P. environment and helps protect the three Great Lakes that surround the U.P. (Superior, Michigan and Huron) said SWP.

“The SWP is focused on completing projects that provide documented, measurable results (cleaner water, more fish, less pollution, etc.),” SWP said. “The SWP has a dedicated staff of biologists, planners and educators that provide creative, science-based solutions to address a variety of water quality, land use and community challenges.”

Currently, SWP has several job openings for students interested. Some job openings include Great Lakes Climate Corps Crew Leader, Great Lakes Tribal Conservation Corps Crew Leader, GLCC WALDEN Institute Trail Crew Leader and more.

“The mission of the Superior Watershed Partnership is to protect and improve the natural resources of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan on a watershed basis; by promoting responsible individual and community actions that ensure a sustainable environment, encourage a sustainable economy and help improve quality of life,” SWP said.

Anyone who cannot stop by the information table can contact SWP directly or learn more about their projects via their website.
