Sweetbriar Nature Center is a not-for -profit organization whose mission is to provide wild life rehabilitation and education to local residents. The nature center is located on a beautiful 55 acre preserve in Smithtown on Long Island. One of the jewels of the center is the volunteer formal gardens. Since the gardens are maintained completely by volunteers, it is always in need of helping hands. The garden intern will assist the head volunteer gardener in all aspects of the garden’s operation, including planting, pruning, weeding, etc. A project is included in the internship, which will be decided upon by the intern and the head gardener. The intern should have a green thumb and enjoy being in the outdoors. This is a wonderful opportunity to work with a dedicated, caring crew of volunteers in a beautiful setting. Salaried positions may be available. Those willing to volunteer their time are always welcome.
