Robin Kimmerer
Blue River Fellow
Fall 2004

Robin is a writer(Gathering Moss: a Natural and cultural history) and professor of plant ecology whose research interests include the ecology of mosses and the role of traditional ecological knowledge in ecological restoration. She has an active research program in the ecology and restoration of plants of cultural significance to Native people. Sharing the natural world with students is a joy to her and she teaches courses in aspects of botany, ecology and Ethnobotany. She is an enrolled member of the Citizen Band Potawatomi. Her interests in restoration include not only restoration of ecological communities, but restoration of our relationships to land. She is the mother of two daughters and lives on an old farm in upstate New York, where she tends gardens, wild and cultivated.
