San Francisco Maritime NHP, #11630 1891 Schooner ALMA Interpretive Intern
National Park Service
6/14 start date, (8 wks)

San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park Is a maritime National Park with a fleet of historicl sailing vessels and historic small craft. The Scow Schooner ALMA has interpretive sails with the public and they have been extremely popular. The waterfront has historic small craft on exhibit in the water at Hyde Street Pier and occaisionally go out on the bay. One, the GRACE QUAN, is a replica Chinese Shrimp Junk that participated in programs both at San Francisco Maritime and China Camp State Park across the bay. Currently, Rangers and ranger guide staff present the intepretive programs for the ALMA sails and the small craft and a largely volunteer crew performs preservation maintenance work on the vessels. This internship is an opportunity to learn new skills: sailing, research, interpretation, and preservation maintenance of small craft, and perhaps develop a great appreciation for maritime history and a love of being on the water. This internship will take some pressure off regular park staff during the busy summer months, allowing for more interpreted programs, more preservation work, and, we hope, more fun all around.

Care for and restore the National Historic Landmark 1891 Scow Schooner ALMA and eight other historic watercraft, learning how to preserve and protect the boats, working alongside the ALMA Captain and first mate; give historic interpretive tours to the public while the vessel is sailing; assist staff with routine preservation maintenance of ALMA while the vessel is dockside; learn how to demonstrate and interpret the other historic small boats to the public.
