Description

Come study at Mt. Cuba Center, a premier botanical garden that embraces ecological gardening and celebrates native plants. Gain hands-on experience in your specific internship area while working one-on-one with our professional staff. Participate in group projects, educational programming, plant identification classes, and trips to other local horticultural organizations. Each intern will complete a special project culminating in an in-house presentation of the results. The program runs from June 1, 2021 to May 18, 2022.

Environmental Education One Year Internship
The Environmental Education Intern gains an understanding of project planning and how environmental organizations support and work with educators to supplement K-12 students' educational curriculum. The intern project is to conduct an environmental education needs assessment for Mt. Cuba Center, as the organization seeks to understand how it may best meet the needs of regional educators and students. This includes becoming familiar with Next Generation Science Standards; communicating with K-12 educators, school/district administrators, and environmental educators; and working with Mt. Cuba staff to identify opportunities and make recommendations. In addition to the needs assessment, the intern participates in the planning and execution of Mt. Cuba's education classes, special events, public and outreach programs. The Intern will also explore programming opportunities for organized groups including Boy and Girl Scouts, 4-H, and the Future Farmers of America. Qualifications include effective written and verbal communication skills, an interest in informal environmental education, organizational skills, and attention to detail.

Compensation
The internship pay is $11/hour for a 40-hour work week, medical benefits included. Interns will be responsible for providing their own housing.

Requirements

Qualifications
The one year internship is designed for individuals with a degree in horticulture, forestry, ecology, environmental studies, associated plant fields, or museum studies who want to become professionals in public gardens. Through this internship, individuals with limited experience in the horticultural industry will also gain basic employment skills. Mt. Cuba Center, while very scenic, is remote and has no public transportation, walking, or bike lanes, so a car is highly recommended. [The use of Mt. Cuba Center's vehicles for personal use is not permitted.]

 

Mt. Cuba Center requires you to fill in their on-line form which will open in a different window.
