Indiana state parks seek summer interns

The DNR is looking to recruit 38 volunteers to work on trails this summer at four state parks for the Indiana Heritage Corps program.

IHC is an AmeriCorps program administered through the DNR Division of State Parks & Reservoirs.

IHC volunteers receive on-site housing, a living allowance of $340 per month, an education stipend ($1,468 before taxes) and hands-on experience, as well as a chance to earn college internship credit and live at a state park.

The state parks that will have IHC are Pokagon (in Angola), Fort Harrison (in Indianapolis), Brown County (in Nashville), and O’Bannon Woods (in Corydon). IHC members will clean, restore and construct 25 cumulative miles of trail in the four parks.

IHC candidates should be at least 17 years old, U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents, be able to pass a strict FBI background check, and be able to make a three-and-a-half-month commitment (Monday to Friday, May 13 to Aug. 16) to the program.

IHC, which started in January 2012, is funded through Indiana’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.

Interested and qualified candidates should email a résumé and cover letter to indianaheritagecorps@dnr.IN.gov. More information is at dnr.IN.gov/parklake/7252.htm.
