The Greenburgh Nature Center (GNC) offers two internships annually, a three-month summer internship from June through August and a nine-month school year internship from September through May.
The GNC is located 40 minutes north of New York City. The Center is a 33-acre woodland preserve, with trails, pond, gardens, and outdoor animal exhibits. Our indoor exhibits include a live animal museum, exhibit rooms focusing on nature and the environment, and a greenhouse.
The two principal roles of the intern are (1) to teach nature and animal programs and (2) to assist in the care and maintenance of the Center’s animals and their facilities and to present animals to the visiting public. The primary participants in our educational programs and our Animal Museum visits are children between the ages of 2 to 8. The intern is also expected to help supervise the activities of the high school volunteers who help in our Animal Museum. We provide training for the teaching of our educational programs and the care of our animals.
