The mission of Denver Botanic Gardens is to connect people with plants, especially plants from the Rocky Mountain Region and similar regions around the world, providing delight and enlightenment to everyone.

At our York Street location, we have more than 50 gardens with 14,000 taxa represented on our relatively small 25-acre growing space. Interns participate in field trips exploring Colorado horticulture and the diverse native ecosystems of the Rocky Mountain region. Additionally, interns are offered professional development opportunities through seminars and conferences, staff-led workshops and industry networking.
