Iowa Arboretum

This summer I am employed at the Grounds Intern at the Iowa Arboretum in Madrid, Iowa. My job duties are seriously all over the board. Anything from using a chainsaw for 7 hours to maintaining the greenhouse, to helping with arboretum events to record keeping. You name it, I probably do it. The Iowa Arboretum is located on 415 acres of land just outside of Ames (a.k.a. the best college town ever) in Boone County. The arboretum is home to many species of trees, shrubs, and perennials, as well as woodland trails and a maintained prairie. I mean could this place be any more me? This is why I couldn’t be more excited for this new adventure with the Iowa Arboretum. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me in weeks to come.
