Citizen scientist profiles

The Echinacea Project relies on a team of volunteers to process the Echinacea heads collected from experimental plots and remnants. Each year, these citizen scientists devote more than 2000 person hours to cleaning, sorting, weighing, and counting Echinacea heads and achenes! We are fortunate to have such dedicated individuals working with us and we would like to recognize their contributions to the Echinacea Project, the Chicago Botanic Garden, and conservation science. Next week we will begin posting citizen scientist profiles on the Echinacea Project blog to give our volunteers some of the recognition they deserve. Stay tuned!
