Want to get involved at Kauai’s premier conservation and research nonprofit, National Tropical Botanical Garden? Are you looking for an internship working with plants? Each year, Kauai’s National Tropical Botanical Garden hosts a Fall Internship Program, formerly called Horticulture Internship Program. Applications for this year’s program are now open!
As described on NTBG’s website:
This work-study internship is designed for college- and university-level students and other adults interested in expanding their knowledge of botanical garden operations for career purposes. Interns will work side-by-side with staff caring for and learning about the plant collections. Schedule includes on-the-ground introduction and training, lectures, or workshops by NTBG staff faculty on plant propagation, plant records/mapping, botany, ethnobotany, restoration ecology, conservation, and other plant-related topics.
This program will be based in Hawaii and there are up to 6 positions to be filled this year.
