Description
Equine Education and Interaction Track (January to August 2023) FREE ROOM AND BOARD and small stipend In the Equine Program, children learn how to care for the 18 horses, donkeys and ponies, and to manage their behavior and emotions to benefit their relationship with the animals. Interns have the opportunity to support children who have been unsuccessful socially or academically as they begin to experience success in the particularly supportive surroundings of the equine program. Interns participate in carefully guided interactions, helping students to develop riding and stable management skills that enhance social, emotional, physical and academic growth beyond the horse barn. Interns in this area assist in riding classes, work one-on-one with students, and are responsible for taking care of the daily needs of our equine herd. Wildlife Rehabilitation Internship Track (January to August 2023) FREE ROOM AND BOARD and small stipend The Wildlife Center features a beautiful education center, animal triage care area and has large display and flight cages, woodland paths and naturalistic habitats. State licensed wildlife rehabilitators, an environmental educator and animal caretaker comprise the staff in this area. Interns in this area will assist wildlife classes, work one-on-one with students, learn about wildlife rehabilitation, maintain the center and become primary caregivers for the animals.
