Opportunities with the Santa Fe Botanical Garden
Santa Fe Botanical Garden is an educational resource that connects people with nature and fosters respect and enjoyment of plants and conservation.
Through exploration of our public garden and preserve, fun and innovative programs, volunteerism, and education, we provide opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to be inspired by and learn from nature.
New Mexico Youth Conservation Corps Crew – Six crew members will work part time to participate in habitat restoration, invasive species removal, and other projects. Applicants should be New Mexico residents, 16-25 years old. Mid July start date.
Due to COVID, we will not be accepting any new applications this summer. Each summer, the Santa Fe Botanical Garden offers an internship program for students entering or currently in Middle or High School, grades 6-12. We look for six to ten responsible, highly-motivated students who want to spend time in the garden, plan and implement hands-on activities for the public about nature, plants, and gardens, and investigate the ecosystem in and around the Botanical Garden. We meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am-12pm in June and July. For more information about any of our education internship opportunities, contact Mollie Parsons, Education Director.

We also offer a variety of opportunities for college students in education, marketing, horticulture, collections, and more.
