Internships at the Park
A National Park Service internship offers students valuable work experience in an agency committed to the conservation and enjoyment of our nation's natural and cultural resources. Students will have the opportunity to interact with professionals in their chosen field and will gain hands-on experience in resource management and interpretation.
Internships at this park last approximately 12 to 15 weeks, depending on the requirements of the academic institution. Most schedules and course requirements can be accommodated and starting dates are flexible. Interns are expected to work 40 hours a week, including weekends and holidays.
Training and uniforms (where needed) will be provided. The intern must provide transportation to and from work each day. Housing is generally not available. A driver's license is required in order to operate government vehicles within the park during the work day.
