Have you taken a ranger-led hike in the park? Asked questions of a ranger in a visitors center? Seen a roving interpreter at Logan Pass? It’s likely you encountered a fellow as a part of the Glacier Conservancy’s Interpretive Ranger Fellowship Program. This project supports the cost for eight interpretive interns. These positions will provide unique professional development opportunities for college students and recent graduates and invaluable visitor support for interpretive and curriculum-based programs. Each intern will provide information as well as formal and informal interpretation for 600 programs with 25,000 visitors throughout the summer months. With you, the Glacier Conservancy is pleased to invest in the park’s next generation of park stewards through this evolving fellowship program.
Stipend-based internships are not eligible for government funding yet these positions play a critical role in recruiting and developing future staff and providing core visitor services.
