BFREE offers internships to self-motivated individuals with strong interests in conservation and sustainable living. We encourage personal growth, freedom, and self-fulfillment. Internships are designed on a person by person basis keeping the interests of both the organization and the individual in mind.
Interns have played a crucial role in the establishment and development of BFREE. Interns generally participate in a variety of ongoing projects at BFREE for a well-rounded educational experience. Potential projects include:
Field research assistance
Educational program development
Trail maintenance and expansion
Life as a BFREE intern can be extremely rewarding--for the right individuals.
