    Natural Resource Intern

    I worked at Student Conservation Association as an intern (less than an year)


    The internships are all expense paid (they pay for airfare/transportation to and from the location, and give you $150 every two weeks, housing is provided). It is a great way to meet new people from across the country and learn more about how the agency (NPS, USFWS, etc.) funcitons. Make sure you look carefully at position descriptions. I would highly advise against jobs where you just pull weeds all day. Definitely take advantage of learning GPS/GIS at your site. And best part is if you work 120+ hours (I believe) you get a free pass to all national parks and federal lands for a year!


    Highly recommend bringing a car or a bike. You can definitely feel isolated at times especially if you are living off site. Also, the work can get very tiring when you are out in the field all day. Make sure to check yourself every night for ticks.
