Lisa Is a student at The Evergreen State College , studying Botany , and is expecting to graduate in 2016 .

About Me:
I am a senior at the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. My interests are in botany, ecology, environmental history, socio-economics, and restoration. For the past four years at Evergreen I have been helping to create a field guide to the vascular plants of our local, endangered prairie ecosystem and through this project, I have become interested in scientific communication and botanical illustration. After graduating, I plan to stay in the Pacific Northwest and continue my involvement in local restoration efforts.

My Projects
When seed sourcing matters for restoration on the Colorado Plateau (2014)

Ecological restoration is the process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged, or destroyed. One key decision that has to be made when carrying out a restoration is determining where the seed should come from. Until recently it has been assumed that local sources are best, because they are most likely to be adapted to the climate and environmental conditions
