Details
 

Grand Teton National Park, in partnership with the Student Conservation Association, is accepting applications for a 1-year historic preservation internship.  The intern will be responsible for developing a new pilot volunteer program called the Grand Teton Hammer Corps, which will provide a formal avenue for returning volunteers, increase volunteerism opportunities in the park, and address critical preservation needs at historic buildings throughout the park.  In 2016, the program will focus on the historic 4 Lazy F Dude Ranch on the banks of the Snake River.  Photos and information about the 4 Lazy F are available here: http://www.nps.gov/grte/learn/historyculture/upload/Final-4-Lazy-F-HSR-with-cover-opt-red.pdf

Applicants should have a background in historic preservation, architectural history, history, or a related discipline.  Experience in construction or hands-on preservation is especially desirable.  Applicants who are interested in developing hands-on skills will have the opportunity to attend preservation workshops at the Western Center for Historic Preservation and may shadow skilled preservation carpenters.  

This position is currently funded for 1 year.  If additional funds are available, the position may be extended for another year, however this is not guaranteed.

Furnished housing within Grand Teton National Park will be provided free of charge for the duration of the internship.  Additional benefits include a living stipend, education award, travel award, and health insurance.  Please see the FAQ for eligibility: http://www.thesca.org/serve/young-adult-programs/faq
