Work Study Internship

If you're interested in our workstudy internship, please give us a call or send us an email. There are opportunities to participate both at Turtle Lake Refuge downtown and at our farm. During the growing season, we usually have weekly work parties on the farm in the morning. Please call or email to find out the specific day. It is best to find your own place to stay but there is a guest room in the community house ($50/night) that is available for short term visits such as a week or less.  The self-designed work study internship is a great way to participate in our daily activities and learn about the projects we are involved in. Volunteering on lunch days includes a lunch and we do have bikes that can be borrowed for getting around town with.  Please let us know your interested and specific areas that you want to learn about and we can coordinate the activites that most cater to your desires.  Thank you!
