Intern at Merck this Summer

Kristin Smith

Internship Positions Available at Merck Forest and Farmland Center May 14th to November 16th, 2012

Interns will have the opportunity to learn about the concepts and practices of grass-fed livestock production, demonstration gardening, environmental education, trail maintenance and some carpentry. Interns are also encouraged to pursue an independent project while they are with us.

Applicants must be a minimum of 18 years old—dedicated, motivated, physically active people—who enjoy the sense of accomplishment that comes from a hard day's work outdoors in all types of weather. Experience in the outdoors with education, equipment and/or animals is preferred, but not necessary. Interns also need a strong willingness to learn and openness to teach others.

To apply, email a cover letter and resume to sarah@merckforest.org.
