Students and recent grads interested in the establishment, development, and maintenance of a botanical garden have an awesome opportunity to gain valuable, practical experience in a tropical setting by working and learning at the National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG) on Kaua‘i through their Fall Internship Program.
This program is designed for energetic and motivated individuals. Interns will work side-by-side with staff caring for and learning about the plant collections, including native Hawaiian species, breadfruit, and other tropical species. The 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.
The internship runs August 17 through November 18, and the deadline to apply is May 6. Interns will primarily be working in the Kalāheo/Lāwa‘i Valley.
