GeoScience Teacher-in-the-Park Summer Internships
For questions, please contact the Scott Beason, Park Geologist, by email.
Teacher-Ranger-Teachers perform various duties depending on their interests and the needs of the park, including developing curriculum-based materials, presenting interpretive programs for the general public, staffing the visitor centers, helping to lead teacher workshops or taking on special projects.
Once teachers return to their schools, teacher-rangers bring their national park experience into their classroom throughout the school year. During National Park Week in April, teacher-rangers wear their NPS uniform to school and engage students and other teachers in activities that relate to their NPS experience.
The Teacher-Ranger-Teacher program provides a $3,000 living stipend for full-time work. Shared park housing is also provided.
