The Hiawatha Interpretive Association Summer Internships
2017 Internships sponsored by Hiawatha Interpretive Association
Hiawatha Interpretive Association anticipates funding three regular internships and one
botany intern this season. Internships are open to students and non-students alike and
are typically 18 weeks in length (40 hours per week). A $250 weekly stipend is granted
and housing is available at no cost. Internship dates are somewhat flexible and typically
run from mid-May through early September.
Interns will work in the very fast-paced Interagency Visitor Center 1-2 days per week,
providing courteous, accurate information to visitor center patrons, assisting with gift
shop sales and other duties as assigned. Interns will spend 1-2 days per week greeting
visitors and providing roving interpretation at the Grand Island National Recreation Area
(on Grand Island) and will spend 1 day per week developing and implementing an
interpretive program. Examples of programs include daily lighthouse walking tours,
nature hikes, campground campfire programs, interpretive tabling and dark sky
programs involving the forest’s large Celestron telescope. Interns will also assist with
our More Kids in the Woods youth program throughout the summer.
The Botany Intern will be granted a $300 weekly stipend and housing at no cost and
this position is a partnership between Hiawatha Interpretive Association, Hiawatha
National Forest, and Superior Watershed Partnership. Opportunities will be provided in
botany and wildlife education outreach and training will be provided in each area.
