The Morton Arboretum typically offers a 13-week internship in public horticulture every summer.
The Public Horticulture Internship is designed to introduce students to the dynamic, multifaceted, and rewarding field of public horticulture. By rotating among the science and horticulture staff at the Arboretum, interns gain a broad range of experiences that will help shape their future career interests. They also work on independent projects, which they present toward the end of the internship.
A limited number of internships are available each year. The Arboretum can help with living arrangements.
