National Park Service/NCPE Internship Program

Big Cypress National Preserve, located in south Florida to the east of Naples and west of Everglades National Park, covers 729,000 acres of a mixture of temperate and tropical plant communities. Some of the major habitats of the Preserve include cypress swamps, marl prairies, pinelands, hardwood hammocks, and mangrove forests. Currently, the Preserve is looking for an archaeology intern to assist their Archaeologist in planning and conducting pre-burn archaeological surveys of Prescribed Burn Units planned for ignition in FY22 and FY23. This work is vital for the Preserve to establish baseline conditions of its sites before prescribed burn and wildfire activities occur.

Duties will include database research, shovel testing and screening in the field, artifact analysis, recording and updating site information, mapping using GPS and ArcPro, and assisting in the write up of project results. The work will be a mix of in-person and remote. However, travel to remote areas of the Preserve will also be required. These positions are sponsored by the National Council for Preservation Education (NCPE) in cooperation with the National Park Service.
