I came to work as the curatorial intern at Betty Ford Alpine Gardens to learn about managing plant records for living collections and to assist with plant display labels, a summer job that was a perfect compliment to my Master’s study in public horticulture.
I am very thankful for my summer internship opportunity at The Alpine Gardens. Every day was a new experience with something new to learn.
This summer I began to experience the true atmosphere of living in the mountains in Vail, CO. Working at the gardens was an amazing experience.
My experience working as the Horticultural Intern at BFAG has opened my eyes to a whole world of Alpine plants and their ecology that I had previously only been able to experience through the pages of a book.
