This sounds like a great opportunity for research or potential grad school application experience.

UCSB’s Coal Oil Point Reserve has several paid habitat restoration
internships available for Winter Quarter 2009. Interns will work with
a habitat restoration ecologist, the Reserve steward, other interns
and volunteers assisting with restoring native wetland and coastal
sage scrub habitats. Job duties will include planting natives, seed
collection, greenhouse work, invasive weed control, ecological
monitoring, and general site maintenance. Requires 30 hour
commitment; generally 3 hours/week with occasional week-end time.
Applicant must be available either Tues OR Friday mornings from
9am-12noon beginning the week of Jan 5th. $300 stipend on successful
completion of the internship. No experience is necessary but
knowledge of native plants and restoration ecology is a plus.
Positions are funded by Wildlife Conservation Board.
