Why work at the Wrangell Mountains Center?

“A summer spent at the Wrangell Mountains Center is more than a typical internship. The WMC is a centerpiece of an incredible community of artists, scientists, and teachers that offers a glimpse into the heart of Alaska. There is an incredible sense of connection to place in everything from the landscape to the waters to the kitchens and gardens and people. It cements the sense of our place as a part of this planet and the footprint we make on it. And the eclectic job description matches the variety of life in McCarthy.”

As an intern, I can tell you that the Wrangell Mountains Center has had a profound impact on my sense of place and community in McCarthy. My time here has taught me more about sustainable living, solar power systems, hauling water and living on a minimal budget. It has helped me meet fantastic naturalists, teachers, and travelers, as well as the young people and writers who come to our summer programs.
