GODFREY – Twenty-nine interns from colleges and universities across the country were at the National Great Rivers Research and Education Center’s Jerry F. Costello Confluence Field Station this week to kick off their summer internships. The interns spent four days at the Field Station for orientation, during which they got the chance to tour the facility and experience the Mississippi River watershed through day trips and demonstrations by NGRREC scientists. Starting June 2, each intern will return to the site of his or her specific project and work with an advisor over the course of the summer to collect data and prepare a presentation, which will be given during the Intern Symposium Aug. 4-5 at Lewis and Clark Community College.
