Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden

Million Orchid Project

Mentor: Dr. Jason Downing 

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, located in Coral Gables has an opportunity for a student to work directly with the scientists and researchers as part of Fairchild’s The Million Orchid Project. The Million Orchid Project is a community-wide initiative to propagate and reintroduce one million rare and endangered native orchids into urban South Florida neighborhoods. This internship will require work in Fairchild’s state-of-the-art micropropgration laboratory, aboard the innovative STEMLab and at our nursery.
