Cabrillo National Monument Foundation is a proud supporter of Internships at San Diego’s only National Park. Interns perform essential functions at the Park such invasive plant removal, project planning, research, and scientific discovery. The interns are from the NPS Scientists in Parks, local universities, or Ecologik alumni.


We introduce you to intern Virginia Javier.

Her video below won accolades at a film festival and truly shows the impact that one intern can provide to the Park and to the future of preserving and protecting these public lands.


With your gift to CNMF, you support Cabrillo National Monument’s Intern program and help provide opportunities to talented youth and students like Virginia. Without your support of CNMF, programs like this would not exist.
