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.

Applicants should have a strong interest in environmental stewardship, and/or related environmental studies. Applicants should be capable of rigorous outdoor work including lifting, digging, and sustained walking. 

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.

Application deadline is Friday, May 26, 2023.

Applications may be downloaded here or you may submit the online Intern Application form below.    Written applications can be mailed / and or emailed to the address on the form.  Please send any questions to info@abbottmarshlands.org.
