ES Majors and minors – check out the internship opportunity below!
I am an environmental educator at Clay Pit Ponds State Park Preserve in New York City. I am looking to recruit a Regional Environmental Education intern to serve at my site and at five other State Parks throughout the city. You can see the job description posted here: https://thesca.org/serve/position/Regional-Environmental-Educator/PO-00711714. This position is really great in that it provides a lot of freedom for the intern to explore their interests and to create their own projects. Besides teaching and writing programs, the member could help maintain and design exhibits, care for animals, initiate stewardship projects throughout our 270-acre forest, design interpretive flyers and brochures, monitor the wildlife of the Park, and/or design horticultural installations. I am especially interested in any candidates with an art background.
This position is offered through Student Conservation Association as a 10 month Americorps internship. Housing (rent and utilities) is provided at my site in a historic farmhouse. A driver’s license is required for this position; a state vehicle will be provided for on-the-job travel. A personal vehicle is not required but is highly recommended. Interns are provided a $200/week stipend. Upon completion of the full 10 months, members receive a $5,815 education award that can be used to pay off existing student loans or toward future continuing education. This position is ideal for anyone who has just graduated, possibly in December. We have another 10 month intern who will be starting in a few days. The start date for this position will be February 13th but move-in will be within the week before.
Thank you for your time and your help.
