The Wyoming Wilderness Association has internship opportunities available—MUST LOVE WYOMING’S WILD PLACES!
The Wyoming Wilderness Association is a nonprofit organization located along side of the majestic Big Horn Mountain range in Sheridan, Wyoming with offices in Buffalo, Lander, Dubois and Jackson Hole. Our mission is to work to protect Wyoming’s public wild lands to ensure a future of wild places. We have the opportunity to protect additional watersheds, intact ecosystems, old growth forests, and important wildlife habitat and wildlife migration corridors--wild landscapes that truly deserve lasting protection as Wilderness. WWA is also involved in educating our citizenry about the appreciation, history and legacy of our wilderness lands, and in developing programs in collaboration with community partners to get people of all ages into the wild. We are celebrating our 10th anniversary as a voice for wilderness this year!
The Wyoming Wilderness Association is seeking four interns who would like to spend their summer learning to advocate, educate and organize for the protection of Wyoming’s wild lands. Projects include organizing campaigns to protect the Rock Creek proposed wilderness of the Bighorns, Shoshone and Bridger-Teton roadless areas in the national forest planning process, and the deserts, canyons and high plains/badlands areas managed by the BLM. The intern’s tasks may include handling media outreach for our Outings Program, helping to lead trips into roadless areas on our federal public lands, and watch-dogging and writing comments on public agency proposals that could harm future wilderness lands. If you have the desire and heart to be part of a home-grown, spirited wilderness organization, then send us your resume and a letter of inquiry. Your passion for wild places is pivotal.

As a small organization with enormous vision, we can only offer this experience to someone who has the means to survive financially on a small expense account, find their own housing (we may have free housing in some of our office locales, but it is not guaranteed), and have reliable transportation. A small stipend of $500 per month for full-time work will be available to qualifying candidates. College credit is available through your own institution. We believe that the benefits and contributions of participating with the Wyoming Wilderness Association will be a lasting gift not only for you but for future generations to come. We do boast that 90% of our interns have gone on to full-time positions with conservation organizations.
