Thanks for your interest. I am a botanist with a Masters. My 2014, 2015 & 2016 projects include surveying National Vegetation Classification Surveys in Golden Gate Canyon State Park, and roadside vegetation analysis for CDOT. 2015 was a great year for seed collection with 115 species collected from Nebraska Sand Hills, Loess Hills, IA, Picketwire Canyonlands, New Santa Fe Trail, Rocky Flats and my backyard, Golden Gate Canyon State Park, for the Chicago Botanic Garden's Dixon National Tallgrass Prairie Seed Bank.
