Citizen scientist profile: Anne


Anne joined the Echinacea Project’s volunteer team in 2007 after learning about volunteer opportunities with the Chicago Botanic Garden through her local garden club. During her time with the Echinacea Project, she has helped with nearly every lab task from cleaning heads to counting achenes. In fact, Anne has counted more than 300,000 achenes! She also volunteers with the Garden’s seed bank helping to clean and prepare seeds for future habitat restoration. Outside of her work at the Chicago Botanic Garden, Anne works part time and is an active member of her church congregation.

This is one in a series of profiles recognizing the hard work and dedication of citizen scientists volunteering for the Echinacea Project at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
