Internships & Volunteering

INTERNSHIPS
Students interested in careers in Environmental Education or Public Horticulture greatly benefit from an internship in our Education Department. They assist and conduct educational programs in home horticulture and natural history for adults and families throughout Callaway Gardens. Topics may include insects, snakes and birds, as well as herb gardening, garden design, butterfly gardening, and topiary. Interns also conduct children’s programs dealing with natural history and gardening, including art projects. Interns answer gardening and natural history questions in person, over the telephone and through written correspondence. Interns also assist in leading hikes in The Preserve at Callaway Gardens. All internships are late-May through August.

To apply for a position in the Callaway Gardens Internship Program, students should send 1) a resume; 2) a cover letter describing career goals, professional interests and reasons for seeking an internship position; 3) three letters of recommendation; and 4) a Callaway Gardens employment application to:
