National Park Service Climate Communication Internship Program

This paid, summer internship program was initiated in 2012 by the National Park Service National Capitol Region Urban Ecology Research Learning Alliance (UERLA) and George Mason University’s Center for Climate Change Communication (4C). The internship program is designed to create opportunities for students of diverse academic and personal backgrounds to gain skills and experience in the synthesis, interpretation, and development of science communication products while increasing knowledge about climate change and its effects on parks.

Over eight weeks, we train and place undergraduate and graduate interns in National Capital Region national parks to develop materials and programs that communicate the impact of climate change on natural, cultural, historical, and recreational resources in the parks. Our interns have developed a variety of products ranging from park ranger communication toolkits to park-specific webpages.
