Since 2008, the Arboretum and the Norfolk County Agricultural High School have partnered to offer junior-level students a plant science and collections management internship experience at the Arboretum. Over the last five weeks, our ten “Aggie” interns learned and worked alongside our talented staff across the institution on topics ranging from pruning, planting, and IPM practices to microscopy, herbarium mounting, and archival management. Below are just a few snap-shots from their journey.
