Mercer Summer Internships

Know someone who needs an internship? Mercer Botanic Gardens is looking for eight college students to serve as summer interns! Two education and volunteerism interns will assist with educational programs, lead children’s tours and volunteer groups, and create educational brochures.

Four horticultural interns will work in the gardens and greenhouses collecting seed, processing and propagating plants, and researching planting procedures. Two interns, courtesy of the Houston Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas, will work in the herbarium documenting and cataloging plant specimens; identifying plants and updating their current nomenclature; and assisting in the Mercer Botanical Center.
