Volunteer & Paid Internships
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)
Content development for social media
Garden work days/park work days
Event support (planning and executing)
Animal conservation research in collaboration with MVNC partners
*All interns must pass background check and requirements, and be at least 13 years of age
Summer volunteer internships are not paid. High schoolers can apply but must be 13 years of age. The Nature Center typically does not host winter interns during the slower seasons.
Volunteer interns should submit volunteer paperwork and can be onboarded in 1-2 weeks. Experience and interests may impact what projects are available.
