I'm Katie 🌾 a botanist | plant ecologist | restoration volunteer from the Prairie State (based in northeast Illinois), most excited about conserving biodiversity, learning about all living things, and rebuilding the connection between people and land. My expertise is the flora of the upper Midwest.

🌱 A Botanist's Field Notes
🌱 Illinois Botany group on Facebook

Online resources for learning and identifying the flora:

"Each person, human or no, is bound to every other in a reciprocal relationship. Just as all beings have a duty to me, I have a duty to them. If an animal gives its life to feed me, I am in turn bound to support its life. If I receive a stream’s gift of pure water, then I am responsible for returning a gift in kind...Paying attention is a form of reciprocity with the living world, receiving the gifts with open eyes and open heart."
⁠—Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass
