This project will provide the intern with a variety of skills preparing them for future employment in conservation interpretation and education. The Intern will work with park staff to develop a video, digital, or other interpretive media project showcasing an aspect of the park's youth conservation outreach and education program, such as the Mother/Son Adventure, Geocache Public Lands Pursuit, or Family CAMP programs. The format of the project will depend on the interests and skills of the Intern. The goal of the project is for the Intern to learn about effective conservation education and developing interpretive products and for the public to develop connections to public lands, hear conservation messages, and learn about park programs that are available to them to participate in. The Intern's final presentation will be available on the park's website and social media and in other venues as appropriate. Other skills to be developed include: • The Intern will learn about the planning, preparation, and presentation of interpretive programs. • The Intern will learn the foundational principles of interpretation and develop skills in informal, roving interpretation. • The Intern will be trained in good customer service and public interaction through formal training and practice at the park's visitor center. • The Intern will learn how to plan safe backcountry trips on public lands in Alaska. • The Intern will participate in detailed orientation training of multi-agency managed lands, including arctic climate, geology, and diverse ecosystems. • Learning will occur both in the classroom and in field settings. • Learning will be focused on the education ideals of conservation and creating the next generation of stewards. • The intern will receive training in Operational Leadership, CPR/First Aid, Leave-No-Trace principles, and wildlife encounter safety.
