Outreach and Marketing Intern for the Tahoe Heritage Foundation

Share |

Company/Organization: US Forest Service


The Tahoe Heritage Foundation supports a variety of preservation, restoration and education projects and programs in the Lake Tahoe Basin. The Tahoe Heritage Foundation was founded in 1996 to enable a public/private partnership with the US Department of Agriculture that manages Forest Service restoration projects and interpretive activities at the Tallac Historic Site and the Taylor Creek Visitor Center adjacent to the southern shore of Lake Tahoe. While the Tallac Historic Site and the Visitor Center are the flagship partnerships of the Tahoe Heritage Foundation, over the years the Tahoe Heritage Foundation has formed partnerships with other public entities for specific projects. Past partnerships include the California Tahoe Conservancy, the Tahoe/Bikal Institute, California State Parks and the City of South Lake Tahoe. In addition, the Tahoe Heritage Foundation supports the efforts of other groups in the Tahoe Basin that are engaged in restoration and interpretive activities such as the Vikingsholm Foundation and the Friends of Glen Alpine Springs. The Tahoe Heritage Foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

General duties will include helping the day-to-day operations of two Forest Service recreation sites, the Tallac Historic Site and the Taylor Creek Visitor Center. The intern will gain experience in the planning, coordination and management of sites dedicated to public access. The intern will also help with donor outreach, advertising, marketing and special event planning. Additional duties, based on skill level and interest, may also include website design, newsletter creation and grant writing. This is a valuable opportunity to gain experience working in every facet of a non-profit with a small, but dedicated, staff.

Interns are provided as much structure with their schedule as possible, but some flexibility must be assumed. The intern will be expected to be available for some weekend, night, and holiday work as well. The intern will occupy the same office as the Site Manager when at both locations, and can look forward to learning about the full breadth of activities and skills needed to run and support a highly visible recreation area. All staff and volunteers bring a sense of enthusiasm and humor to the site; it is a great team to work with and a beautiful place to spend the summer. Please e-mail with any additional questions.
