Sustainable Agriculture Internship

Position Description: The Sustainable Agriculture interns play a crucial role in the success of our small farm: SAGE. This is a great opportunity to work as part of a cohort of interns and gain hands-on experience. Sustainable Agriculture Interns learn about small-scale agriculture, local hunger relief, educational gardening, sustainability, permaculture, and connecting people with the food that they eat. As a part of the SAGE team, you will help to grow the ~5 tons of food that we donate each year to aid individuals and families suffering from food insecurity in our local community. More information about the Sustainable Agriculture Internship can be found here.

Nature Exploration Internship 

Position Description: As a Nature Exploration Intern with the CEC, you will be an integral part of creating and implementing place-based environmental education for all ages. We work in schools and natural areas throughout the Corvallis community. Programs include after-school enrichment, field trips, and more. Students learn about local native and non-native ecology while exploring the natural world around them, increasing their environmental literacy. We provide a wide range of programs under the Nature Education umbrella and work with interns to design their experiences around their interests. More information about the Nature Exploration Internship can be found here.

Early Learning Internship

Position Description: The Corvallis Environmental Center’s Avery House Nature Center focuses on early learning through nature-based education. We run the NaturePlay Preschool (for ages 3-5) M-F from 9:00 to 12:00 and our Niños de la Naturaleza (Bilingual Natureplay Preschool) program (for ages 4-6) which runs T & Th from 1:00 to 4:00. This means that shifts for interns would be M-F 8:30-12:30 or T & Th from 12:30-4:30 with the option of working a full 8:30-4:30 day if your schedule allows. Interns will assist in the preschool classroom, prep and clean up snacks, art projects, and activities. We would prefer for Early Learning Interns to be with us for at least 2 days a week, if possible. Being bilingual is an incredible asset for the PM Niños de la Naturaleza program. More information about the Early Learning Internship can be found here.

Garden and Nutrition Internship

Position Description: The Corvallis Farm to School program makes connections between our food system and our school system. Our program increases the use of local foods in our schools, encourages children to make healthy eating choices and supports regional farmers. As an intern, you will gain hands-on experience in food, nutrition, and agricultural education, get to work with community volunteers, and assist with promoting local foods for our school district. We provide a wide range of programs, and work with interns to design their experience around their interests. More information about the Garden and Nutrition Internship can be found here.
