CREW needs YOU!

Our dedicated volunteers are essential to the continued success of CREW Land & Water Trust. Volunteers do everything from trail maintenance to guiding hikes and MUCH more!

Our interns work with our staff and volunteers to provide quality education programs, facilitate citizen science and educate visitors on the importance of the watershed.

Internship Application

The CREW Trust selects one to two interns for Fall and Spring, and occasionally one intern for the summer to work under the supervision of the Education Coordinator. This internship program concentrates on Environmental Education, but interns may also gain experience in land management, wildlife research, public relations, and non profit organization.

This internship program provides a small stipend and is geared for college-level students studying related areas such as, but not limited to, environmental studies, education, and organismal biology. The internship length and hours usually depends on the needs of the student, but is typically 5-15 hours per week for one semester, but can be spread out over two semesters.

Applicants should be comfortable being outside in rain, heat, bugs, and mud for extended periods, as well as comfortable around and in front of groups of people of all ages. Applicants need not be experienced in environmental education to apply.
