History

In 2001, in partnership with The Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) the Chicago Botanic Garden's Division of Plant Science and Conservation launched a mentoring program to train and employ science graduates from a wide variety of fields to assist land managers with their huge task of preserving and protecting biodiversity on our public lands. Since then, the National Park Service (NPS)U.S. Forest Service (USFS), U.S. Geologic Survey (USGS), and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) have also become valued partners.

To date, the program has successfully placed over 1,000 interns, providing them with a rich experience from which to launch their professional careers.
