Akins Park Ranger Cadet Program
Students in the Park Ranger Cadet program will participate in our Wildlife/Natural Resources Pathway and eventually have the opportunity to become park ranger cadets with a paid summer internship. Students spend a large amount of time in the field experiencing the job duties and responsibilities of park rangers. Students have the unique opportunity to learn from field experts, such as environmentalist and horticulturalist, and work hand in hand to improve our community and Austin parks. Cadets contribute back to the community by helping facilitate youth programs and public events. Students are able to network with professionals and establish memories that will last a lifetime.
