January Interns Find a Warm Welcome
By Ellen Hertzman, Former Manager of Volunteer Experience on Jan 27, 2009
The Gardens welcomed two interns from Oberlin College during the month of January. The young women, who between them are majoring in Plant Biology, History, Creative Writing, and Environmental Studies, lent their energy to numerous projects. They spent time measuring champion trees, finding and creating children's activities for our upcoming Jurassic Gardens exhibit, working on a Green page for our Web site, archiving old photos and documents in the library, and generally making themselves useful! Here you can see them preparing plants in the Herbarium, where their work will be immortalized in our museum of plant specimens. The interns wanted to learn more about the workings of a botanic gardens; in the process they advanced the work of Denver Botanic Gardens on many fronts!
