Bumper Crop of Interns at the Garden

Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden always has a ‘bumper crop’ of interns during the summer. The internship program is another way in which the organization furthers botany education. RSABG interns receive hands-on training as plant scientists.

Our interns come to us from a variety of sources

  • Multicultural Undergraduate Internship Program is a Getty Foundation initiative that supports internship opportunities for students at Los Angeles area museums and visual art organizations. Lisa Gluckstein, RSABG’s 2011 Getty Foundation Multicultural Undergraduate Intern, will be helping to archive the Marcus Jones collection.
  • The Chicago Botanic Garden’s Conservation Land Management Program has placed interns Christi Gabriel, Stephanie Rockwood and Lindsey Ward to help with RSABG’s herbarium and conservation botany programs.
  • California State University, San Bernardino, through a U.S. Department of Agriculture training grant has placed Terry Higgins and Christopher Galley at RSABG.
  • Pamela Luncz, a plant science major at Cal Poly Pomona, is interning with RSABG Horticulture helping with grounds, nursery and plant inventory operations.
