In My Backyard is tailored for high school-aged students or recent high school graduates looking to connect with the National Park Service. If you’re looking for a PAID internship with professional development opportunities, field trips around Seattle, and collaborating with the National Park Service, this is for you! We truly believe in tailoring every summer to reflect each cohort’s goals. Not only is this a PAID internship, but you have the opportunity to complete school volunteer hours/credit needed for graduation.


If you have questions about IMBY, please email us at and we will respond as soon as possible.
