Additional Volunteer Opportunities

Interested in an unpaid internship opportunity?
Various locations based on need and qualifications
The Nature Conservancy in Virginia occasionally has need for regular, longer-term volunteers or unpaid interns. Internships may be available in a variety of locations in various departments (i.e., stewardship, marketing, conservation science, GIS, etc.). A typical stewardship volunteer during field season would travel with Conservancy staff (based out of the Charlottesville Office) to various preserves around the state doing projects like, trail maintenance, vegetation monitoring, tree thinning, invasive control, fire line creation, and other related projects as needed. Other internships may involve researching particular topics, creating databases or doing literature reviews. Please send your resume and cover letter explaining your interest to Jen Dalke, volunteer coordinator, at or 434-951-0572. Internships generally last between 8-10 weeks at 10-20 hours/week, but is flexible based on need and qualifications. If you have a specific project in mind, please note it.
