Summer Work for Historical Interpreters on the GW Parkway

George Washington Memorial Parkway is seeking qualified students to work as interpreters in the park this summer. Students will be awarded the opportunity to provide services to visitors by giving talks, interpreting natural and historic features, answering questions, and guiding tours.
