The Philipstown Garden Club and its community based non-profit partners are now accepting applications for their annual Summer Internship Program. The internships are open to upcoming high school juniors, seniors, and 2014 graduating seniors interested in horticulture and/or the environment. Students looking to do something interesting this summer, that also pays a stipend and builds a resume, are encouraged to apply for this opportunity.

The five non-profit partners are: Constitution Marsh Audubon Center & Sanctuary; Manitoga; Stone Crop; Glynwood; and The Garrison Institute. The program is also supported by the Masonic Lodge No. 236 and the Putnam Highlands Audubon Society. The program consists of eight 20-hour weeks, flexible hours, and a $1,000 stipend.

Prospective applicants can download the application and obtain more information about the different non-profit partner organizations by going to and going to Internships. The program deadline for applications is May 1.
