From time to time I’ve visited the beautiful Arc of Appalachia Preserve for a class, a hike, or a weekend retreat in the company of good people. Today’s post comes from the Arc’s Tim Pohlar and Nancy Stranahan, who are seeking naturalist interns for 2008. In their efforts to convey the message, they appreciate any assistance “flinging it out to the universe.”
The Arc of Appalachia Preserve System is in need of positive and hardworking interns to help fulfill its mission. Interns gain valuable professional experience while supplying vital help and support for a bold and successful grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and restoring wilderness in the East and providing educational opportunities and a sustainable future for humanity.
Available: March – November 2008
Pay: $300 / month plus lodging
The Arc strategically preserves natural areas, creating a protected system spanning five Ohio counties and a 90-mile crescent from its headquarters at the Highlands Nature Sanctuary in Highland County to the Ohio River.
Interns are given extensive training in natural history, outdoor interpretation, and green lifestyles. Their primary task is to manage the educational facility, Cave Canyon, the visiting public’s gateway to the Arc of Appalachia Preserve System. In return, interns receive housing, a monthly stipend, hands-on naturalist experience, and the opportunity to help run an innovative and successful nonprofit organization.
This program is for those who wish to walk the path of the naturalist and share the gifts of nature with others, for those who want to work hard for a good cause, and for those who yearn to find balance in their lives that can lead to a sustainable future.
Interested or know someone who would be? See the internship program details on the Arc of Appalachia Preserve System’s website.

“We are very excited about this year’s plans for our educational center, the Cave Canyon Nature Preserve, but we need interns to help make it a success!”
