    Job Summary:
    Join a small team of dedicated park employees working to help visitors remember the events surrounding the Nez Perce Flight of 1877, and the lasting effects on both the Nez Perce and American societies.

The intern will receive training in formal and informal interpretation, become familiar with operations at a visitor center in a small national park, and gain knowledge on a variety of topics and issues regarding Nez Perce history and present day culture.
