Intern Program

Interns are an integral part of the staff and participate in all aspects of the center’s operation and have an opportunity to work with all ages, and with a variety of groups, including schools and the general public. Interns are involved in general Nature Center operations including weekend festivals and events, curriculum and program development, and writing articles for the newsletter. Tin Mountain’s best interns have a strong desire to teach and share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the natural world. A background in education or the natural sciences is helpful but not necessary.
