GeoCorps™ America offers paid short-term geoscience opportunities in some of the most beautiful natural areas in the world. Topic areas include geology, hydrology, paleontology, mapping and GIS, minerals, soils, glaciology, geohazards, karst, education, and interpretation. GSA partners with the USDA Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and other organizations committed to science and stewardship in order to offer the program.
