Christopher Is a student at University of Washington-Bothell , studying Environmental Science- Conservation and Restoration Ecology , and is expecting to graduate in 2014 .

About Me:
I have always been fascinated with the natural world. This passion, which includes spending as much time in the outdoors as I can, hiking and fly fishing, led me to pursue a degree in environmental science. I am very interested in conservation and restoration ecology. My introduction to geographic information science (GIS) has opened exciting new pathways for studying and understanding conservation and environmental issues using spatial data.

My Projects
Using spatial analysis and GIS to investigate patterns in rare plants monitored by the Chicago Botanic Garden's Plants of Concern Program (2013)

The Plants of Concern (POC) Program (www.plantsofconcern.org) monitors 237 species of the Chicago Region's endangered, threatened, and rare plants, assesses long-term trends in rare plant species, and provides data on plant response to management activities and environmental threats to over 112 partner landowners and managers for conservation
