Internship Program

Internship and Scholarship Program  

Learn on the job in one of the most spectacular and wild settings in the lower 48 states. Summer 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. 

Summer interns work throughout the watershed—including in 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 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 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.
