We offer both educational internships and job opportunities throughout the year allowing students and young adults the chance to learn organizational and management skills in outdoor recreation and a foundation on which to build their resume.
We hired 27 high school interns and full-time young adults in the summer of 2020 to support our mission.
Please contact us if you are interested in working for us next summer!
