Native Plant Stewardship Internship



Juniors, seniors and graduate students at UM students are invited to apply for a 1-3 credit internship to help maintain and interpret the Ethnobotany Garden. Credits can also be arranged through Biology or Environmental Studies, and maybe other departments if needed.
Students will learn about native plants, invasive species, gardening and more. This is a hands-on internship working outdoors with native plants and in natural areas, combined with academic work. Student interns will work on Mt Sentinel, at Fort Missoula, and in the Payne Center Gardens. Training is provided and schedule is flexible. 

Good communication skills, work ethic, willingness to be outside in inclement weather, and love of plants are important prerequisites.  

Internship is supervised by Marilyn Marler (she/her), UM's Natural Areas Manager. To apply for the internship, or find out more, please email or text(or call) 406-544-7189.
