We have incredible jobs, working in some of the most remote and pristine landscapes in Alaska.
These are our continuing stories from the field.

Hello! I'm Ashley Guevara from Verona, Kentucky, a recent graduate from DePauw University with a Biology major. I'm super excited to work with the NPS and what's great about my internship is that I'll be involved in a variety of field projects so I'll get to experience a lot of different types of work as well as go to multiple locations within the parks.

The beauty I’ve experienced in wilderness areas inspires in me a very strong reverence for the outdoors. It’s very special and important to me to preserve certain areas in the same way that they have been for thousands of years so that I and others after me can enjoy seeing them in their natural state. It’s also very important, especially in a place like Alaska, for practices such as subsistence hunting and fishing to be able to continue. Many remote communities depend on living off the land for food and resources, and it is important that they have that land reserved for them. This is why I'm elated to help create a new digital photographic library of Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve.
