For those interested in environmental education, Audubon Vermont provides students and recent graduates with a paid, 400-hour internship over the summer. The Intern will have an opportunity to gain practical experience, teaching students (ages from preschool through high school) while working directly with GMAC’s team of professional Teacher/Naturalists. Our summer interns see a variety of education program from schools to visiting camps to our popular playgroup to our very own summer camp. This opportunity pays $13/hour.

Interested in learning about conservation efforts for priority birds in the state of Vermont? Conservation Interns will work closely with Audubon Vermont’s Conservation biologists to learn monitoring techniques and ways to create and enhance habitat for birds. Potential projects interns may assist with include monitoring Vermont bird species of conservation concern, working with private landowners on farm and watershed restoration projects, and conducting public outreach. There are two 21-hour a week positions that pay $13/hour.

This position is for young professionals seeking a job in conservation or forestry and will work one on one with Audubon Vermont’s forester learning forest monitoring and management techniques with birds in mind.
