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 typically selects one or two unpaid interns each semester, and sometimes we need one during the summer.

Interns help us with public outreach and our environmental education programs, leading field trips, public relations, marketing, and assisting with special events. They also get experience working with field research and monitoring projects like water monitoring, maintaining trails, working with volunteers, and doing office tasks. Working with a cooperative project such as the CREW Project gives our interns experience with multiple agencies and exposes them to a variety of career options. Feel free to call us to discuss internship opportunities or email a cover letter, resume and completed application to Julie Motkowicz, education coordinator (education@crewtrust.org).
