Environmental Concern’s summer intern program offers interns a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a native plant nursery operation. Interns will learn the growing process from propagating, sowing, and maintaining native plants to potting and preparing plants for orders. In addition, learn how to identify different species of native plants and the conditions they require to thrive in their natural habitat.

Interns will better understand the importance of native plants in our local environment. This is an ideal opportunity for students or recent graduates interested in gaining valuable experience working with an experienced nursery team, eager to share their knowledge. We look forward to welcoming motivated and energetic individuals to our team.

This position is physically demanding, primarily working outside or in a greenhouse. A suitable candidate can tolerate being dirty, hot, cold, wet, around bugs, bending, squatting, lifting (30+ lbs.), and repetitive tasks. Interested applicants should contact EC by June 5th.

We are eager to find dedicated interns who share our passion for creating healthier natural habitats and waterways by propagating and planting native species. So join us this summer and make an difference in your community!
