College internship

The WCC also offers summer environmental education internship opportunities for college students. The environmental education internship is designed to expose interns to the field of conservation education and wildlife biology. Interns conduct a variety of education programs and assist with the daily operations of the WCC.

Throughout the course of the internship, interns will primarily deal with the general public but will also have opportunities to interact with camps and scout groups. Interns will contribute to the success of the WCC through development of special projects, support work, and general maintenance. The internship will run from mid-June through mid-August; interns must be available for the entire period, including evenings and weekends. Interns can expect to work roughly 40 hours per week.

The WCC does not offer housing for interns and all interns are responsible for securing their own transportation to and from the WCC. Interns will receive a stipend of $750 for their summer internship.
