Volunteer at the Chicago Botanic Garden

Many volunteers help with all aspects of research at the Chicago Botanic Garden, from September through May, and are essential to keeping the Echinacea Project going. We always need help cleaning seedheads and scanning, counting, and x-raying seeds. We also usually have a few other projects going on involving microscope work, curating our insect collection, taking photographs, database maintenance, web development, or something else. Also, we can always use help with data entry! Let Stuart know your interests, skills & expertise and we’ll see how you can help the Echinacea Project!
