Mt. Cuba Center is now accepting applications for summer internships for seven positions.  These internships are geared toward students who are interested in working and studying native plants, gardening and conservation.  Our program encompasses both working hands-on with professionals as well as plant studies.  Students are paid $10.50/hr.  Students complete the internship knowing how to identify native plants, how they grow and how to incorporate them in the landscape.  Students spend time both in the field and in the lab and working with a mentor.  Housing is provided on-site.  Click here for a full description of the program and a downloadable brochure.

A non-profit, public garden, Mt. Cuba Center is considered to be the Mid-Atlantic’s finest woodland gardens. Our mission is to foster an appreciation for plants of the Appalachian Piedmont and the conservation of their environment through garden display, education, and research.

Please forward this message to any of your students who may benefit from this hands-on training. The application deadline is March 1, 2011.
