Tyler offers a paid 10-week summer internship to someone just starting out in an environmental field. This position offers hands-on experience and valuable learning opportunities, including professional development and networking. Throughout the summer, they work side-by-side with our Horticulture staff to learn how to care for and maintain our 650-acres.
This year’s intern, Maribeth Beatty, has benefited so much from her time here. She says, “I am incredibly grateful for the time I was able to spend at Tyler this past summer. The staff, volunteers, natural areas, and wildlife all have a way of making each day unique, exciting, and educational. I really hope more students can benefit from Tyler and this internship in the way I did. It is simply a priceless gift that has provided me with a wealth of knowledge, future opportunities, and an abundance of memories.”
