Maggie Eshleman’s work focuses on improving native plant establishment on restoration sites in the sagebrush sea. One method she’s testing for improving establishment is to package seeds into a kind of planting medium “dough” that stimulates early seedling root growth. The hope is that the seedling can continue to access water during the summer dry season.

Prior to joining The Nature Conservancy, Maggie worked as an environmental consultant, where she travelled all over the U.S. conducting plant surveys and monitoring revegetation projects. She received her bachelor’s degree from Washington and Jefferson College and a M.S. in plant biology and conservation from Northwestern University.
