Habitat Horticulture

Habitat Horticulture

This team’s work is centered in the habitat gardens of the Environmental GATEway located at the west end of the Arboretum and Public Garden. This area will soon be home to the Mary Elizabeth Wolf Center for the Environment and serve as another main entryway to the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden.

This internship will provide students with hands-on skills including seed collection, propagation, weeding, planting, maintenance, species monitoring and plant record keeping. Learning plant and pollinator identification will be heavily emphasized. Students will learn and integrate the natural history information of the many species that use the garden's resources. 

Quarters: Year Long—Fall through Spring
Schedule: 3 hours/week commitment for the entire school year
