Karen Beaty

Karen works as a horticulturist at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin, Texas. She primarily works in the 4.5-acre Luci & Ian Family Garden but also participates in land management efforts such as prescribed burns. She received an M.S. in Land Resources from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a B.S. in Biology from Davidson College. As a 5th-generation Texan she is fascinated with the native flora of the Southern Plains region and enjoys hiking and camping as a way to meet new plants. Her outside interests also include vegetable gardening, homesteading, and building things with scavenged materials.
