Internship Program Reports

 

The Morris Arboretum internship program provides hands-on experience and an education that prepares interns for careers in public gardens and related fields. Year-long, full-time internships are offered in the following areas: arborist, education, flora of Pennsylvania, horticulture, natural lands, plant protection, rose and flower, and urban forestry.

Each intern completes an independent study project that is geared towards advancing his or his career development and the Arboretum's mission. Each project consists of an oral presentation and a written report. Towards the conclusion of the internship program, all independent study projects are presented to the Arboretum staff.
