Morris Arboretum is a historic public garden and research and educational institution. It promotes an understanding of the relationship between plants, people and place through programs that integrate science, art and the humanities. The internship program provides hands- on experience and an education that prepares interns for careers in public gardens and related fields.
Unfortunately due to visa regulations, we are unable to accept international applications for the internship program.
Advance tickets are not required to visit but are strongly encourage for first time visitors.
The Garden Railway will not be operational from 2:00 PM Friday (July 19) through the weekend (July 20-21). The trains will open for normal operation on Monday, July 22nd.
