Mentoring the next generation of conservation scientists is central to the Garden's conservation and research mission. Undergraduate intern research programs are facilitated by partnerships with Atlanta universities including Georgia Tech, Spelman College and Emory University, and organizations such as the Greening Youth Foundation. Students are able to complete internships for academic credit through their home university.
Area undergraduate students are invited to join the Garden's Conservation & Research department to gain experience in the field of conservation biology. Undergraduate interns can choose to work on a project of interest. Past students have worked on the evolutionary biology of orchids, conservation genetics, native pollinator surveys, and rare and endangered species monitoring.
