Trees For Tomorrow seeks interns

EAGLE RIVER, Wis. — Trees For Tomorrow, a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering sustainable management of natural resources through hands-on educational experiences, is offering a 2020 summer internship program.

This 10-week program is an opportunity for college students or recent graduates in the natural resources or education field to spend a summer in Eagle River and gain valuable teaching experience under the mentorship of experienced environmental educators. Applications are being accepted through March 20 and can be obtained at www.TreesForTomorrow.com or by contacting program coordinator Bethany Heft at 715-479-6456, ext. 233, beth@treesfortomorrow.com.

“My internship at TFT gave me a lot of confidence in public speaking and I gained knowledge about the environment which played into my success in being able to get the jobs I wanted,” said Heft, an educator at Tree For Tomorrow. “I’m looking forward to the new ideas and energy that our interns will bring!”

In addition to the opportunity of exploring the woods and waterways of Wisconsin with preschool-age children to adult participants, an on-campus dorm and most meals will be provided, plus a $1,400 scholarship awarded on completion of internship and required project.

Staff also is willing to work with interns to gain college credits

Two positions are available from June 8 through Aug. 14. No previous knowledge or skills are required.
