OTS Las Cruces Biological Station manages land for resource conservation, research and education. The station protects a watershed, native species, and works to contain areas of livestock and agricultural development. It is home to the Wilson Botanical Garden, the most famous botanical garden in Central America. The garden features beautifully diverse tropical and subtropical plantings, as well as rare and endangered plants from Costa Rica and elsewhere.

Interns will be given the opportunity to participate in research, sustainability projects, or educational activities relevant to their fields of study. This is a great fit for Biology, Environmental Sciences, Botany, Zoology, and Sustainable Development students interested in research and fieldwork experience in a unique and diverse, tropical environment.
