Citizen scientist profile: Suzanne


Shortly after retiring from her career as a program manager with the National Opinion Research Center, Suzanne took a course on native prairie plants at the Chicago Botanic Garden and began volunteering at the Garden. She initially worked to restore the Garden’s prairies before joining the Echinacea Project in the early 2000s. In the lab, Suzanne is usually busy cleaning Echinacea heads or preparing achenes for weighing and X-raying. She enjoys gardening and volunteers with a bird rescue organization as well as the Butterfly Monitoring Network in her spare time.

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.
