State Parks seek summer interns

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Division of State Parks & Reservoirs seeks to add 17 volunteer participants for May through August to Indiana Heritage Corps (IHC), an AmeriCorps program in which participants complete trail work at four state parks.

According to the DNR, on-site housing, a living allowance of $335 per month, an education stipend ($1,468 before taxes) and hands-on experience are provided, as well as a chance to earn college internship credit and live at a state park.

Volunteers will serve at Pokagon (in Angola, four positions), Fort Harrison (in Indianapolis, six positions), Brown County (in Nashville, three positions), or O’Bannon Woods (in Corydon, four positions) cleaning, restoring, and constructing 20 cumulative miles of trail in the four parks.
