CSU student involvement in CNHP

One of our work-study students, Katie Dykgreve, recently presented a poster at the 17th annual Front Range Student Ecology Symposium about our newly improved Online Rare Plant Field Guide.  Katie and our website development intern Ryan Nelson, worked with CNHP Systems Administrator Garrett Pichler, Botany Team Leader Jill Handwerk, and Director Dave Anderson on the overhaul of the guide.  Her poster included a mock-up of what the concept for a page in the new online guide will look like when implemented.

 Katie discusses her poster.

Katie reported:
“Observers and presenters crowded the North Ballroom of the Lory Student Center where I eagerly waited to tell all who would listen about the Colorado Rare Plant Guide. Most of the posters represented research conducted by graduate students at CSU as well as a presentation of sea turtles by a local elementary school. I enjoyed talking to a graduate student from Mongolia whose father is a botanist and conducts rare plant surveys in protected areas in her home country. Overall, FRSES is an amazing experience and I look forward to participating in it again next year not only to represent CNHP but also to show off the great projects we are working on here.”

Thanks for showing off the new guide Katie!
