Since March of 2001, the greenhouse has been managed by Marianne Harris, a 1998 USU honors graduate in Environmental Studies that included a plant/ biology science emphasis. Fascinated by plant-insect interactions and ethnobotany, Mari finds the greenhouse a perfect place to learn more about her interests while improving the collection and maintaining the facility. She is a member of the Association of Education and Research Greenhouse Curators (AERGC) and Utah Native Plant Society.
Eden Williams enjoys the Biology Greenhouse atmosphere, which is the ideal place to live up to her namesake. She finds that working greenhouse is a superb stress-reliever not only during finals week, but with every visit in general. Eden recently completed a year- long internship at the Biology Greenhouse which has allowed her to learn the basic skills of operating a greenhouse and maintaining a wide variety of greenhouse plants based upon their individual needs.
