Become part of Hawaii’s conservation story

The 2024 Summer Internship Program at Lyon Arboretum is co-sponsored by the Friends of Lyon Arboretum (FLA). The Education Department, Grounds Department, Horticulture Department, Micropropagation Lab and Seed Lab under our Hawaiian Rare Plant Program will host one intern each sponsored by FLA.

Applicants can select their first, second, and third choice for their home department: Education Department, Grounds Department, Horticulture Department, and the Hawaiian Rare Plant Program’s Micropropagation and Seed Lab. Applicants will need to submit a resume and transcript (unofficial transcript is acceptable), after which placement will be determined.


Interns are required to participate in group activities as scheduled. Interns will assist in various tasks detailed by their respective departments and gain valuable in-depth experience there. During group rotations, they will also develop an appreciation for the other units at Lyon and receive insight into what their colleagues are doing during the internship timeframe. Other activities include field trips to other gardens, a service project offsite, and participation in an outreach event.

Interns will also be required to do a presentation about their time at the Arboretum as well as report about their department project results.
