Description

This internship is a partnership between the National Park Service and George Mason University’s Center for Climate Change Communication. The National Park Service (NPS) works to protect and preserve America's cultural and natural resources, presenting the opportunity to observe changes caused by global warming. The National Capital Region (NCR) of the NPS spans across areas of Virginia, Maryland, and Washington D.C. and is home to national monuments, battlefields, and diverse natural landscapes. George Mason University’s Center for Climate Change Communication (4C) researches climate change public engagement strategies. The partnership between NPS and 4C creates a unique platform to educate and engage park visitors with climate change impacts and solutions.

Up to ten interns (including three multimedia interns) will have the opportunity to work with 4C, the NPS, park staff, and the NPS’s Urban Ecology Research Learning Alliance to develop climate change communication materials for National Capital Region Parks (greater Washington, D.C. area). In the past, the products developed during the internship have ranged from interpretive resources for park rangers to videos to digital and print brochures and maps.
