Internships with Friends of Buford Park

Our internship program provides a mutually beneficial experience whereby interns gain hands-on learning and job experience by working alongside our professional stewardship or office staff and participating in a high profile, regionally significant restoration project! Following are some internship opportunities with us. Internships are unpaid.  Call Trails and Volunteer Coordinator Mieko Aoki, at 541-344-8350, or email [email protected] for more details.
