Native Plant Nursery, Cactus Society Internship Program

Pima County is teaming with the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona for a special panel discussion with Bonnie Kay and several other local organizations. Through this event you will learn about new research confirming the value of human-animal bonds. Bonnie strongly believes in strengthening the human-animal bond by supporting various programs and organizations including the Pima County Animal Care Center. 
Get your hands dirty this summer because Pima County’s Native Plant Nursery and the Tucson Cactus and Succulent Society are offering an eight-week summer internship to a student interested in conservation and horticulture. They'll pay $2,000 in the form of a scholarship to the accredited educational institution the student attends. Students are encouraged to visit the nursery before applying.
