National Park Service internships provide learning opportunities through activities such as wilderness re-vegetation, assistance with preservation and restoration projects, water quality monitoring, surveying, educational cave tours, or assisting resource management staff.

Internships offer an interesting and educational experience in some of the most beautiful areas of the country. This is your chance to get actively involved in the stewardship of the United States' national and natural treasures.

How to Join

Many parks offer opportunities for internships. A centralized list of internships, however, is not available. If you are looking for an internship in a park, the National Park Service suggests that you select one or more parks that interest you and contact them directly. Information on how to contact a park is available on each park's Web site.
