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.

Guest Experience One Year Internship
The Guest Experience Intern learns to create remarkable experiences at a public garden by assisting in the evaluation of on-site interpretation materials and the development and implementation of public programs throughout the year. The intern project involves the evaluation of our newly developed interpretive suite of products, such as signage, wayfinding, and interactive activities, all key elements of Mt. Cuba Center's interpretive planning process. The intern's evaluation tracks the efficacy of the products and leads to recommendations for improvement. In addition to their evaluation project, the intern participates in planning and executing Mt. Cuba's seasonal events as well as coordinating programs with local partners. The intern also develops project management skills through cross-department collaboration and external communication skills in relaying key messages to the public. Qualifications include a familiarity with Adobe Photoshop and InDesign, adaptability, organizational skills, attention to detail, and the ability to interact with the public.

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.
