There is so much to learn when working in NYC Parks. Internships are a great way to focus on a specific project for a finite period of time, learning and developing skills all while delivering much-needed assistance. Some examples are below:
- Surveying conditions of particular aspects of the park such as trees, benches and garden beds helps us make decisions on their care and maintenance.
- Gathering data on wildlife helps the NYC Parks’ ecologists.
- Ecological restoration builds upon the biodiversity in our urban natural areas.
- Managing our social media strategically spreads good news and engages a broader audience.
