Description:
Grassy Waters Preserve is dedicated to creating dynamic environmental education experiences that connect residents with the pristine natural environment that serves as their water supply, and instilling visitors of all ages with the knowledge and motivation to act as stewards of this important Everglades ecosystem. To address this mission, this internship focuses on teaching students for 8 weeks. The intern will receive certifications for environmental education and will work closely with Grassy Waters Preserve staff in the following activities: canoeing, dipnetting, and swamp tromping (check our website for further descriptions in the school program section). If you have further questions about the interns, please email mcrider@wpb.org

Please contact Mary Crider at mcrider@wpb.org for an application. Below are the qualifications and requirements for this college internship:

Grade point average greater than 3.0

Graduate/Undergraduate status: Upper classmen and graduate students are given priority. Recent graduates can apply up to 2 years past their graduation date.

Once the program begins, interns are expected to complete the entire 8-week program. Interns are expected to work 32 hours a week on site at Grassy Waters Preserve. The days of the week that the interns work at the Preserve can be flexible to accommodate classes or another job. However, interns are expected to take part in all camp field trips covered by the Kate Svitek Grant. Dates for these field trips will be given ahead of time.

The program involves rigorous field work in the South Florida Everglades ecosystem during the hottest and rainiest time of year.

Interns are paid a stipend of $2,000.

Room and board is the responsibility of the intern, although some assistance in locating housing can be expected from Grassy Waters Preserve.
