This internship (sponsored by a scholarship from the park’s Friend’s group) is designed to give interested college students and recent graduates the opportunity to work with professional park staff at Historic Huntley, a restored federal period villa. Historic Huntley is part of Huntley Meadows Park, a 1554 acre wetland preserve. The house, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, was built by Thomson F. Mason, grandson of George Mason. The preserve occupies land used by Mason for agriculture. The intern will specifically focus on developing education programs, writing interpretative materials, and presenting programs. In addition, because this internship is funded by Friends of Historic Huntley, participants will learn how volunteer groups can work in concert with government institutions.
