Intern Wanted to Create Multimedia Wildlife Trail
Live on a National Wildlife Refuge and use your talent and skills to help wildlife. You'll design and produce two multimedia wildlife trails - one trail each for Julia Butler Hansen Refuge for the Columbian White-tailed Deer and Willapa National Wildlife Refuge. Through the use of audio, video, text, graphics and unique site markers the trails' content will encourage users to utilize their senses and simple activities to explore the refuges and discover the compelling stories of, and personal meaning in, these wild places. You'll receive formal and informal training on interpretation and product design, project management, potential federal service careers, and the National Wildlife Refuge System.
Internship Dates: any consecutive 12-weeks between mid-May and mid-September 2012
This internship is supported by the Student Conservation Association (SCA) and you will recieve housing, travel reimbursement and weekly stipend.
