Betty Ford Alpine Gardens Internships
Betty Ford Alpine Gardens offers internships to students in horticulture, botany, landscape architecture and related disciplines. Interns participate in a variety of learning activities in the horticulture industry and includes field trips to area public gardens and plant identification outings on mountain hikes. Adult lectures and workshops on various horticultural topics are also available to interns who are interested. Of course, the hands-on experience gained in day-to-day garden activities with the Gardens staff is the most valuable to interns.
Interns complete a project related to their particular interest and the specific need of the Gardens. Recent intern projects have contributed greatly to our Volunteer and Children's Programs as well as high-elevation medicinal plant collections and garden design. The projects and garden work interns complete are clearly valuable learning opportunities but are also essential for the success of Betty Ford Alpine Gardens.
Interns work for a period of twelve consecutive weeks typically from June to August. Summer 2013 Internships are offered in the areas of Gardens Mainentance and Education. Click on the "Summer 2013 Insternship" link for further information about the program and application process.
