Interns - Brackenhurst Botanic Garden, Kenya
Brackenhurst Botanic garden was started in 2000 as a small arboretum when we started felling exotic plantations of eucalyptus, cypress and black wattle. Gradually much of the area has developed into an ecological restoration project that is attempting to restore ecosystem services in a valley in the East African montane and sub-humid forests north of Nairobi. We have a growing forest of nearly 40ha comprising at least 1500 species of higher plants and about 250-300 species of trees, shrubs and lianas.
We are looking for interns interested in plant taxonomy, specimen identification and/or tree propagation techniques.
