National Park Service/ NCPE Internship Program

Big Cypress National Preserve was established in 1974 as America’s first National Preserve. Fire activity is an essential component of managing a healthy and diverse ecosystem in the Preserve. Natural fire, prescribed fire, hazard fuel reduction, and fire effects monitoring help restore natural processes while providing for firefighter and public safety.

The Fire Records Intern will organize and describe records generated during the course of managing fire activity in Big Cypress National Preserve. Duties include appraising, arranging and describing records according to professional standards and using records management and archival techniques. Free park housing is available to the successful candidate.
