  • Horticulture – The summer Horticulture Internships are designed for students pursuing a career in the field of public horticulture or related field. Students have the opportunity put their classroom learning to work in real-world situations and obtain valuable hands-on work experience.
  • Plant Records – Keeping accurate records on the many thousands of plants in the gardens is vital in a public garden. Denver Botanic Gardens’ summer Plant Records internship allows students to participate in this critical function.


  • We offer internships for academic credit and occasionally paid internships, please contact us at research@botanicgardens.org for current opportunities. Past internships have focused on conservation genetics, long-term monitoring of rare plants, botanical surveys and collection management.
