I developed a passion for ecology and restoration work in college. The first time I walked in an expanse of prairie changed how I saw the world around me. I learned how native landscapes are at the base of all life since they build soil, filter water and provide habitat for all critters. Since moving to the city, I have realized that our built environments can be designed with ecological principles to preserve our precious resources. I support Metro Blooms because they collaborate with neighborhoods to implement solutions across the Metro to protect our environment.
