Two 1200-hour interns are sought to work as a team to assist the NCR Architectural Conservator and HS-CRIS Coordinator with maintaining and updating the Cultural Resources Inventory System (CRIS) for Historic Structures within the National Capital Area (District of Columbia, Virginia, Maryland, and West Virginia) of the National Park Service (NPS).

CRIS is NPS’s inventory of cultural resources on its lands, maintained in part to comply with Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act, NPS Management Policies (2006), Director’s Order 28 (Cultural Resources), and Director’s Order 28a (Archeology).  Its records include archeological sites, cultural landscapes, historic (classified) structures, and ethnographic resources. This in-person training opportunity will be located in Washington, D.C. and includes a combination of remote office work, in-person office work, and field documentation.

Duties for this internship include working with regional and park preservation professionals, conducting onsite conditions surveys of historic resources at various Parks in and near Washington DC, documenting resources through photography and geospatial mapping, conducting condition and integrity assessments of resources, and data entry of survey information into the CRIS system. Interns may also be asked to participate in other survey efforts or projects with the Preservation Services teams as help is needed. This opportunity will allow the intern to learn about and participate in a preservation program by working directly with Federal cultural resource professionals in the National Capital Region Preservation Services team.
