Help us with your curiosity.

With new eyes comes new ideas that help us discover nature in ways we hadn’t thought of before. Interns assist with a variety of assignments, each year with different projects. Past interns have worked on, but are not guaranteed to be available in the future, projects related to the following:

  • Teaching public programs

  • Teaching summer field trips

  • Filming virtual programs (scripting to editing)

  • Garden work days/park work days

  • Event support (planning and executing)

  • Animal conservation research in collaboration with MVNC partners

  • Trail maintenance

  • Curriculum/program development 

  • Marketing planning

  • Animal husbandry

*All interns must submit volunteer paperwork and be at least 13 years of age
