Internship Program

Developing a New Generation of Environmental Leaders

Internships are Mt. Cuba Center’s greatest investment in the future. Our goal is to inspire students who have an appreciation for the beauty and value of native plants and a desire to protect the environments that sustain them to become future public garden leaders.

We offer two types of internship programs:

Our Summer Intern program runs for 12 weeks and is designed for individuals who have completed at least their junior year of college in programs in natural resources, horticulture or plant sciences.

A One Year Intern program for college graduates with a degree in horticulture, forestry, ecology, environmental studies, associated plant fields, or museum studies to become Botanical Gardening Professionals.

At this time, all summer and one-year internships are filled and we are not accepting applications. Internship positions are posted in January.
