Nurseries are open from Mid-March through Mid-October, there are different sessions within that time frame available for interns depending on availability (see https://wrcmn.org/Wildlife-Internships-at-WRC/12/ for details).

Commitment of 20-30 hours per week and 300 hours minimum to complete the internship. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older to apply. College students, college graduates, or people just looking for a fun hands-on experience with wildlife are all welcome. Housing is not provided.
