Internships

Are you a high school student, college student, or adult looking to make a longer-term commitment to helping the GRPC? Join our intern team!

Internships at the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy

We view internships as a partnership – ideally, your internship will help you just as much as it helps us!

We ask the following of our interns:

  • Interns must be at least 16 years old.
  • Interns should commit to at least six months regular service at the GRPC.
    • Alternatively, interns can arrange to complete a special project at the GRPC.
  • Interns that work with children have special requirements.
  • Interns should be responsible and open to communication.

Does that sound like you? If so, read on to learn about our current internship opportunities!

Animal Care

We are looking for dedicated, responsible interns to help take care of our Animal Ambassadors by joining our Animal Care Team!

Our animals include one snake, two lizards, one toad, two turtles, several fish, several crayfish, and insects. You do not need experience with these animals, but this role is probably not the best fit for anyone with a serious phobia.

Your duties include changing their water, feeding, keeping their enclosures safe and clean, providing exercise and enrichment, and more! This is a great role for someone who loves animals, is looking to get more experience with exotic animals, or is curious about a career working with animals. You should also be able to keep organized records of the care provided. We will provide you with all the training you need!

The time commitment for this position is 1.5 – 2 hours on a set day each week. We currently have availability on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday before 5 PM.

If you are interested, please email Lauren for next steps. In your email, please include which day(s) and time(s) you are available and why you would like to join the Animal Care team.
