Restoration Intern - Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden
The Restoration Intern will work closely with the Seed Program and Nursery staff on rare/common plant seed banking and propagation/reintroduction contracts. Major duties will include field collections of seeds and cuttings, seed processing, plant propagation and maintenance.
Approximately 10-20% of the time will be spent outdoors in rugged terrain. This will be an opportunity to work closely with multiple agencies (federal, state, and local agencies, non-government organizations, and environmental consulting firms), and to develop hands on knowledge of collection and propagation of wild plants. The intern must approach all tasks with respect for natural, cultural and fiscal resources, co-workers, volunteers, partner agencies, and organizations. This is a full-time seasonal position (40 hours a week), that may require overnight stays, including camping at primitive backcountry sites.
Qualified candidates should please send a cover letter, resume and three references to Billy Sale.
