Summer Internships at Lakeside Nature Center

Monday, January 30, 2017


             Lakeside Nature Center, located in the heart of Swope Park in Kansas City Missouri, is offering 2017 summer internships.  Our facility is dedicated to educating our community about the local native flora and fauna, how to protect and conserve it and maintains a high volume rehabilitation center. 

            Our internships are unpaid but provide an amazingly unique hands on experience.  Interns help the staff and volunteers handle the increased summer intake of injured and orphaned wildlife into the rehabilitation center.  You will be assisting in baby feedings, restraint, wound care and bandaging, medication administration and normal day to day husbandry.  We receive approximately 3500 animals annually in the hospital, so it is  and incredible opportunity to work with various species up close!

            Internships are usually a 3 day commitment with at least one weekend day (Saturday or Sunday).  We are flexible with your weekday and will work with your summer schedule.
