Intern In the National Parks

REMINDER! Applications for the Scientists in Parks Fellows program (SIP) and the Mosaics in Science Diversity Internship program (part of SIP) are due by THIS Sunday, January 23rd!
🌟 Every year, the Scientists in Parks work experience program places hundreds of aspiring professionals across the National Park System to work on natural resource management needs.

👀 There are a myriad of opportunities you can apply to. You could deploy acoustic monitoring equipment at Badlands National Park to record noise levels, assist with backcountry vegetation monitoring within wet forest and subalpine plant communities at Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, conduct estuarine water quality and sea grass monitoring at Cape Cod National Seashore, conduct recreational fishing creek surveys at Biscayne National Park, gather data on the distribution of pollinators at Yosemite National Park, monitor coral bleaching at War in the Pacific National Historical Park, work on paleontological projects at Waco Mammoth National Monument, create interpretive programs related to geological and natural science based topics at Grand Canyon National Park, support inventorying and restoration at Redwood National and State Parks (NPS), collect data for a night sky lighting survey or the tree of heaven invasive species at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, and so much more!
The program is committed to providing all aspiring professionals—especially those underrepresented in science—with a unique opportunity to work on important real-world projects while building professional experience and a life-long connection to America’s national parks.
