Internship Opportunities in Glacier National Park

Interpretive Internships
Park Interpreters are the public face of Glacier National Park. Interns in the Division of Interpretation are responsible for researching, preparing and presenting programs like guided walks and hikes, interpretive talks, boat tours, and illustrated programs on the park's interpretive themes (wildlife, geology, ecology, human history, climate change, etc). These programs are given in a diversity of park locations including campgrounds, trails, visitor centers, historic boats, and historic park hotels. Interns staff visitor centers and provide information and informal interpretation to visitors during fixed station and roving assignments. For more details, please view the Interpretation Internships page.

Research Learning Center Internships
The Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center (CCRLC) does not offer internships on a regular basis, but does work with other park divisions and park partners to provide some opportunities during certain years. In the past, the Research Learning Center has had interns working on sustainability issues, citizen science, and science communication. These positions are typically unpaid, but at times paid internships do occur. In addition, housing is often provided free of charge. When available, internships will be posted on this page. You can also find out about internships and paid positions on the CCRLC's Work With Us page. For more information, e-mail us. We will respond with any new information and put you on a mailing list to receive updates.

Park Ranger Intern Program
Glacier National Park will be looking to hire two Park Ranger Interns for 2022, one for the winter season of 2022 (January-April), and one for summer season of 2022 (May-August). These positions offer a chance to learn about preserving wilderness character, protecting park resources, and promoting visitor safety in Glacier's recommended wilderness and backcountry. The Park Ranger interns work with wilderness and field rangers to contact and educate the public, monitor resource impacts, maintain wilderness campsites, and assist with emergency operations such as Search and Rescue and Emergency Medical Services. These positions also assist park staff with wildlife management. These internship opportunities will be posted for the 2022 season through Pathways on USAJobs.gov. For more information please visit our Wilderness Intern page and the Glacier National Park Volunteer Associates.
