Website National Park Service/NCPE Internship Program

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore (PIRO) was established in 1966 with a mission to preserve a nationally significant portion of the Great Lakes shoreline; allow public access to its geologic scientific, scenic, and historic features; and offer opportunities for recreation, education, inspiration, and enjoyment.

PIRO is located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula on the south shore of Lake Superior between the communities of Munising and Grand Marais. The park encompasses 42 miles of Lake Superior shoreline and is renowned for its colorful sandstone cliffs, miles of beaches, waterfalls and streams, inland lakes, 100 miles of trails, and the 1874 Au Sable Light Station. The area is rich in public lands and outdoor opportunities including mountain biking and skiing. Amenities in Munising include grocery and convenience stores, public library, and bars and restaurants. Complete shopping opportunities, entertainment venues, and a regional medical center are in Marquette, Michigan, 43 miles west of Munising.

The overall goal of the Archives / Record Internship will be to maintain federal records related to buildings and facilities located within the park. Specific duties include appraising park records for disposition, preparing building plans for digitization, digitizing facility records, digital record organization under an existing framework, and conducting research in park archives related to the historic nature of park-owned structures.

The Archives / Records Intern will be supervised by the park compliance specialist, and also work closely with the Resource and Facility Division Managers. The selected intern will gain experience in federal record management, archival research, and National Historic Preservation Act Section 110 procedures. PIRO staff frequently work in a collaborative manner and there will be opportunities to shadow staff in other resource and facility positions.

The internship will start in September and, at a full-time schedule, will run for 30 weeks until March, 2024.
