Open Space Intern Program
The Town of Danvers has over 350 acres of open space lands, which are available to the public for use for passive recreation including walking, bird watching, picnicking, fishing, and canoeing.  A limited number of these lands have been improved to provide amenities such as parking areas, picnic areas, walking trails, and canoe launch ramps.


Since 1986 the Town has employed summer interns to oversee, improve and perform maintenance of existing open space and passive recreation lands, including grounds and facilities.  The interns monitor the use of these lands, and construct of new trails and facilities.


Interns work under the supervison of the staff in the Department of Planning and Human Services.  They help to carry out some of the goals of the Open Space and Recreation Plan.  Interns may also be involved in preparing informational brochures for the public, mapping trails, photographing Town-owned conservation land.The intern program runs from May to the end of August.
