Museum Education interns research and create interactive, interdisciplinary learning experiences in the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden — an outdoor, living museum.
Focused on making the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden accessible to visitors of all ages, students work directly with clients, such as Arboretum and Public Garden staff, to create educational signage and tours, and maintain signage throughout the Arboretum. Interns have the opportunity to engage with the natural environment, gain skills in visitor studies and informal education, and build strong team relationships. Throughout this internship, students will learn strategies to effectively communicate educational content in an outdoor museum.
