Jack Graham Internship
in the Abbott Marshlands

In honor of Jack Graham, a long-time educator and friend, we are pleased to announce this opportunity to carry on Jack’s legacy in the Abbott Marshlands.

Jack Graham was a tireless advocate, educator, and helper for the marshlands.  Whether the need was teaching kids how to fish, building educational displays, clearing trails or picking up trash, Jack was enthusiastic in his work in whatever was needed to support the mission of the Tulpehaking Nature Center and the Friends for the Abbott Marshlands.

Interns can expect a memorable experience helping to improve the marshlands while engaging actively in the field and in learning activities, including an optional independent study project based on personal interest.

All applicants should be 18 yo or older by the start of the internship, and have a strong interest in environmental stewardship, and/or related environmental studies. Applicants should enjoy being outside and be capable of rigorous outdoor work including lifting, digging, and sustained walking. 

Applicants that want to be considered for the Intern Team Leader position should have demonstrated experience in environmental stewardship and leadership.  Intern Team Leader’s salary will be dependent on experience.

Approximately two-thirds of the interns’ time will be spent engaged in environmental stewardship work on the trails of the Abbott Marshlands.  This could include trimming vegetation, trail building and re-alignment projects, clean-ups, and invasive plant removal.  Work will be outside in all weather conditions and will take place at different locations within the marshlands.   

Additional time will be spent learning about the ecology and history of the Abbott Marshlands with hands-on opportunities to collect scientific data on plant and animal life.

The application deadline is April 14, 2024 with interviews for selected candidates being held through April 30, 2024.
