Are you interested in learning more about Oregon and applying your skills in historic preservation and studying our urban and rural landscapes? We are seeking an intern to work on a variety of transportation-related projects and initiatives under the guidance of our skilled professionals. Our Cultural Resources Program seeks to strike a balance between a growing transportation system and the protection of Oregon’s significant cultural history.
