Summer Naturalist Intern

May 2018 - August 2018 Lake Placid, NY
“Beautiful community, and I got to learn so much about nature, climate change, and built skills providing confident educational programs to a wide diversity of guests. I lived in a tent all summer, at the base of the most popular trailhead in New York State! It was beautiful. I learned so much, and grew so much as a person :) I can't urge enough, this internship is truly geared for people who deeply care about nature, the environment, and the outdoors!!! There were a wide variety of activities I got to partake in, such as creating exhibits for our nature museum, leading naturalist walks, giving guided hikes, acting as a summit host on Mt. Jo, giving 45 minute presentations, hosting camp fires, doing night hikes, and so much more. It's really just one of the best summer jobs you'll ever have.”
