Golden Gate National Recreation Area, one of more than 400 national park units across the country, has many sites that span over 60 miles of mostly coastal areas north and south of San Francisco. Stretched across 80,000 acres north and south of the Golden Gate Bridge, these parks also constitute one of the world’s largest national parks in an urban setting. They feature 37 distinct park sites, from Muir Woods National Monument to Fort Point National Historic Site to Alcatraz Island, more than 130 miles of trails, and 1,200 historic structures.

Working within the Cultural Resource division at this 80,000+ acre National Park Service (NPS) site – the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in the San Francisco Bay area – the Intern will conduct historic structure condition assessments, including photo documentation and database input into the NPS Cultural Resource Inventory System (CRIS). The CRIS is an inventory of significant historic structures, landscapes, archeological and ethnographic sites within all parks of the NPS. The Intern will assist with management and treatment evaluations of some of Golden Gate’s more than 700 structures to ensure appropriate stewardship of the park’s cultural resources for future generations. The position is headquartered in San Francisco (SF) though much of the inventory work will likely occur within historic Muir Woods National Monument and the Fort Baker Historic District near Sausalito. Dormitory housing may be available in nearby remote Marin Headlands. Having a personal car for commuting from housing to SF office helpful. A government vehicle will be supplied only for commuting from SF office to inventory sites. (400 hours, starting mid or late March 2021 preferred)
