Want to help give back to your community?
Autrey Mill Nature Preserve Association, Inc., is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation! Financial support is entirely from grants, donations, memberships, and program fees. And, as with all non-profits, there is never enough money. That’s where volunteers fill in. Their skills and labor allow Autrey Mill to accomplish incredible feats on a tight budget.
Consider providing time as a Volunteer. The time spent will provide vital support to ongoing operations while leaving you with the great feeling achieved from being a meaningful part of the community and its environmental and historic preservation. Some areas we could use help with include garden upkeep, general “handyman” work, and cataloging of historical items. We are always looking for experienced carpenters, electricians, plumbers, painters, engineers, architects, and landscapers to volunteer!

Internships at Autrey Mill Nature Preserve
The application period for Fall Internships has closed.
We are currently accepting applications for Winter. The Winter Internship Session runs from December 21st, 2021 through March 20th, 2022. Dates are flexible.
Autrey Mill is very thankful for the support, creativity, and dedication of interns. The Nature and Heritage Center couldn’t have blossomed without countless hours provided by the community. If you are interested in the natural environment, animals, education, and heritage please review our internship program below.
An internship is a special opportunity to learn valuable skills related to a specialized field of interest. This opportunity is designed for individuals seeking higher education and career opportunities. Interns will receive a mentorship and tasks customized to fit their interests and needs for an enriching experience.
Our internship is organized by terms, with Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.
General Internship Information:
- Interns must be 17 years of age or older.
- All internships are unpaid.
- Upon acceptance, the intern and mentor will meet to make a set schedule, goals, and course of learning tasks for the duration of the internship.
- Individual internships will last varying on the schedule and needs of the intern and mentor.
- At the end of the internship, a final meeting between the intern and mentor will take place. The mentor will provide the intern with a letter of recommendation and explanation of the work done during their time at Autrey Mill, and provide resume support.
- Internships can be terminated at any time by any of the Autrey Mill staff as needed. Poor attitudes, lack of determination, and further unprofessional behavior may cause a review of the internship.
