Interpretation Internship
Big Cypress National Preserve is currently accepting applications for the interpretation internship. This internship runs from mid November to mid April. Priority will be given to applicants who can commit to the full season.

Candidates should demonstrate proficiency in public speaking, computer skills, and an ability to work as part of a team. In return for 40 hours of work each week, the intern receives a uniform, housing, and invaluable work experience in a National Park Service site. Depending on funding, a weekly stipend of $150 may or may not be available.
