Prairie Partner Intern ‘13

Current Position: Research Assistant/Graduate Student - Chicago Botanic Garden & Northwestern University

The restoration ecology internship helped to shape the focus of my graduate research at the Chicago Botanic Garden. Though my research is rooted in theoretical ecology, my experience as a MAS intern helped guide my work into a more applicable framework. My favorite memory of the internship was surveying one of the largest Lespedeza leptopstachya (prairie bush clover) populations at Westport Drumlin prairie!
