Museum Education interns research and create interactive, interdisciplinary learning experiences in the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden — an outdoor, living museum encompassing our historic 100-plus-acre Arboretum, our main campus outdoor spaces and the Putah Creek Riparian Reserve.
Focused on making the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden accessible to visitors of all ages, students collaborate with campus and community partners to create educational signage, tours and programs. Interns have the opportunity to engage with the natural environment and gain skills in visitor studies and informal education, while learning strategies required to communicate educational content in an outdoor museum.
