Public horticulture internship
The Morton Arboretum offers two paid, institutional summer internships to students who are interested in pursuing a career at a public garden or arboretum. We consider candidates with a strong academic background and hands-on work experience in horticulture. Qualifications for candidates include gardening or plant maintenance experience and enrollment in or completion of an A.A., B.S., or M.S. degree program in the Life Sciences area (Biology, Botany, Environmental Science, Forestry, Horticulture, or Life Science Ecology). The Arboretum regrets it is unable to accept international students at this time.
Applications for the 2013 internships are no longer being accepted.
The Morton Arboretum offers seasonal employment, unpaid internships, and service learning credit hours to college students or graduate students seeking experience in other areas. See Employment or Volunteer options.
