The Preserve provides internships to qualified applicants wishing to learn about native plants and public gardens.
Start date: May or June, 2015
Timeframe: 12 wks; 40 hrs/wk, includes one weekend day
Hourly wage: $10.00
Interns work closely with Preserve staff and receive in-depth training in native plant propagation, trail maintenance and public education.
Field trips to other botanical gardens, native plant nurseries and natural areas are offered to round out the interns' experience. Interns also attend educational programs at the Preserve and complete an individual project.
Interns are responsible for making arrangements for housing and providing their own transportation.
Applications are no longer being accepted for 2015. Information about the 2016 Internship program will be posted in late November or early December.
