RESEARCH ASSOCIATES

Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden offers botanists and other professionals in the field appointments as Research Associates.  These individuals, by virtue of their affiliation with RSABG, are offered the use of the plant sciences facilities at the Garden.  Staff and plant scientists at RSABG form mutually beneficial collaborations on conservation and research projects with our Research Associates.  These are honorific 3-year appointments without remuneration. Appointments may be renewed upon review.
