UNH Cooperative Extension is seeking two UNH undergraduate students to work with Natural Resources and Community Development staff on the NH Trail Finder Project. The NH Trail Finder Project makes it easy for people to find trails in their communities to increase access to nature, improve health, enhance social connections and positively influence the economy. Trail Finder maps trails across New Hampshire and Vermont on one easy-to-use website. We are currently working to expand www.Trailfinder.info to include more town-owned trails in Rockingham and Strafford Counties. The Extension Community Development team is beginning work to assess potential for trails to serve as economic drivers in NH communities.
Interested undergraduates in the fields of environmental and resource economics, environmental conservation and sustainability, community and environmental planning, or recreation management and policy are encouraged to apply. Application deadline is 5pm on Monday, March 20, 2017.
