Internship Program

Internship and Scholarship Program  


Learn on the job in one of the most spectacular and wild settings in the lower 48 states. Interns help HFF accomplish a large amount of field work in the world-renowned wild trout fisheries of the Henry’s Fork watershed, just minutes away from Yellowstone National Park and a short drive from Grand Teton National Park and Jackson Hole. 

Interns work throughout the watershed—including the legendary fly fishing area of Harriman State Park—on essential research, restoration, and education projects. Interns electrofish and check fish traps to gather fisheries data, survey streams, protect riparian areas by maintaining cattle fences, help with habitat restoration projects, engage in environmental education, and document their experiences through the HFF Intern Blog.

All of HFF’s university internships are funded through generous contributions from individual donors and are tied to specific universities. HFF hosts interns from Virginia’s Washington and Lee University, New York’s Colgate University and St. Lawrence University, and California’s Stanford University. In addition, the Don. C. Byers Memorial Scholarship funds an internship for a high school or college student from our local watershed. Watch this page for information about the 2017 interns.

Summer Seminar Series  

Beginning in 2018, the Henry’s Fork Foundation began a Summer Seminar Series where weekly presentations showcase the latest scientific, technological, and socioeconomic work being done by guest speakers from across the country as well as HFF interns and collaborators. This 9 week-long series enhances intern, community and HFF members experience, engagement, and understanding of various scientific topics. The final two weeks of the seminar series are reserved for intern presentations on the independent projects they complete throughout their time spent working for HFF.  Check out the Intern Summer Seminars.
