@William- not sure how much help I would be, but I use to live there and actually had to turn down my internship there because I accepted mine at Marais des Cygnes in Kansas, lol. Great choice i did

Hello!

My program is at the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in Suffolk, VA. I am curious if anyone here has served in this area and can provide some helpful suggestions for things to do in the area during off-work hours.

Thanks!

Hello everyone! I'm the partnership coordinator for the Tongass National Forest and a proud SCA alumnus, having served in the Forest Service's Alaska Regional Office in the winter of 2010-11. My duties today include providing support and oversight for volunteer and service programs across the Tongass, including SCAs. If you're an SCA intern currently serving on the Tongass, don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns - or great stories!

I'm also happy to talk with any SCA intern about strategies for making the jump from intern to career employee. It's never easy and there are no guarantees, but there's a very good reason that you'll find SCA alums everywhere in land management agencies.

Hey!! I am doing my first SCA internship in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I am heading out in 6 days and am very excited!! Has anyone been out there? Worked with the people out there? Any suggestions on things to check out/do in my free time?

Check out the SCA-Search Project for tips on making the most of your internship.  If your internship has already ended, there are also some great job search resources there.

Anybody in the Yellowstone/Southwest MT region want to meet up for a hike in the park sometime in the next coming weekends?

Comment by Melissa Joy Camp on May 27, 2014 at 2:18pm

I will be in Little Bighorn National Battlefield Monument in MT. I would love to meet up as well!
