U-M's Matthaei Botanical Gardens Helped Give Direction to My Life
"The two marvelous summers I interned at U-M's Matthaei Botanical Gardens will stay with me forever. I am so very thankful for my time at the Gardens. It changed my life," said Kellee Byard (BA '21), who shared her experiences at Matthaei in a blog post after winning the Nanette LaCross Student Prize.
Game changers in action
Kat Superfisky (BA ’07, MS/MLA ’13) - Urban Ecological Design Game Changer
“To me, Los Angeles and its river provide the perfect laboratory for exploring how to rebuild cities—humans’ new natural environment—into more inhabitable places.”
Dr. Martin Heller - Carbon Footprint Game Changer
“It's climate action that is accessible to everyone, because we all decide on a daily basis what we eat.’”
José González (MS ’09) - Community Game Changer
One of the core values of this school is the interdisciplinary nature of the curriculum—which helped me to see that environmental conservation work isn't just about the natural sciences. It isn't just about the ecology. It's fundamental to understand what we're conserving, and why we're conserving it, and that the whole of the biosphere is important for us.

"To be a black person is to come from a long bloodline of survivors and storytellers, with a resilience that people can't even comprehend." - Lena Waithe
In SEAS's commitment towards decolonizing and creating a more equitable world, we want to acknowledge and rectify the erasure and minimization of black and indigenous environmentalists in conservation. We commit to promoting prominent black environmental historians and authors through our coursework and programming.
