Considering a career as a park ranger or interpretive guide? Want to explore to determine whether this is the career for you? Have you taken a Certified Interpretive Guide course with the National Association for Interpretation, and/or need experience? Then look no further! Nebraska National Forest and Grasslands is, once again, offering an amazing volunteer opportunity at Hudson-Meng Education and Research Center (HMERC)! HMERC is located in a picturesque, rural setting on the Oglala National Grasslands in Crawford, just south of the Black Hills of South Dakota. HMERC houses one of the most important discoveries of Archaeology and Paleontology in North America: the Hudson-Meng Bison Kill Site. From approximately Memorial Day to Labor Day each year, HMERC is open to the public five days a week (Wednesday to Sunday) and, for the past several years, dedicated PIT volunteers have helped the project via hosting, site interpretation, personal projects and more. We extend the invitation to you again this summer! The project leader is willing to sponsor undergraduate or graduate students who wish to earn college credit by completing an independent study or internship program through their respective academic institutions. This is a unique opportunity, and makes the Hudson-Meng Interpretation PIT project an especially attractive fit for interested college students considering careers in archaeology/paleontology or as park rangers or park guides!
