2021 Residential Summer Intern
The Residential Summer Internship is a unique experience for college students and recent graduates to connect with themselves, others, and nature at Eagle Eye's forest site in the Berkshires. The program is intended for students interested in sustainability, environmental education, land stewardship, and environmental justice. The four-week experience is intentionally designed for interns to learn and work collaboratively, build hands-on skills, learn to engage youth outdoors, and reflect on their role as advocates for social and environmental justice. As a nature-based experience, interns live, work, prepare meals, and spend their down time outdoors.
The internship takes place at our 220-acre conservation site in Peru, MA, which has been stewarded for the past 30 years to be a beautiful and welcoming retreat for people of all ages and backgrounds. With spacious tent platforms, mapped trails, bathhouse with flush toilets, and outdoor kitchen overlooking the Eagle Eye gardens and forest, visitors are fully immersed in nature while living in comfort and community with others.
The program will take place July 6th-31st, 2021. Interns work Monday-Friday for 35 hours per week and spend weekends on site. A stipend, outdoor gear, and meals are provided. To learn more and find out how to apply, please review the position description here.
