2019 YES! Interns

The internship program, Youth Engagement through Science (YES!) is designed to be a full immersion experience for students ages 14-19. Student participants in the program have numerous opportunities such as behind-the-scenes tours, workshops, college prep classes, and participate in special projects.

Two high school students will intern with the SG’s Tree Collection learning how to inventory, document, and assist in a Tree Collection Photography Project.
