This page serves as an introduction to people involved in the Echinacea project. We have a special page dedicated to volunteer citizen scientists who are working on and have worked on the project. The Echinacea project would not exist in its current form without the incredible work of many dedicated volunteers. We have another page of summer field researchers. Every summer the Echinacea project provides employment and internships for undergraduate students, recent graduates, graduate students, and others starting off in their science or conservation careers. Our summer researchers receive training, gain skills, and get much and diverse experience. In turn, summer field researchers contribute immensely to the project. We accomplish a lot every summer and our datasets are hard-won.
