Abigail (Abi) comes to the Institute with a passion for native plants, rivers and education and outreach. Prior to joining the team, she worked with a variety of non-profit organizations, both in Olympia, WA and northeastern NM. She has collected stream condition data, taught youth about bison and grassland ecology, developed a greenhouse education program for an elementary school, led native plant salvages and restoration projects and assisted with the City of Olympia’s stormwater public outreach and involvement programs. When Abigail is not working, her hands and feet are dirty in the garden, she’s hiking and botanizing, or she’s enjoying the company of friends and family.
