EMPIRE, MICH. -- If you know a college student or recent grad who wants a career in the great outdoors, you might want to point them in the direction of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
Thanks to a grant from the National Park Foundation, Sleeping Bear Dunes will be recruiting additional winter interns for the 2021/2022 season to assist with snowshoe field trips, weekend hikes, and virtual distance learning programs, park officials announced this week.
The internship starts the first week of January and spans about three months, according to a release. Work includes presenting virtual and in-person lessons and activities on topics such as ecology, the National Park Service mission, and local history. Interns may also help lead snowshoe hikes, and will create and post content on the park’s social media platforms.
The position is open to current college students and those who have graduated within the past two years. Internships in the National Park Service are designed to be stepping-stones to careers within the agency or a similar workforce, officials said.
More details on the internship program, and application information, can be found on Sleeping Bear Dunes’ website at nps.gov/slbe/getinvolved/winter-interpretation-interns.htm.
