About the Botanist

Morgan S. Abbott graduated from Utah Valley University in 2018 and holds a bachelor's of science in Botany.

Throughout her undergraduate career, she participated and led multiple research projects, including water sampling in Utah Lake and Haiti. Previously, she has worked in Bears Ears National Monument sampling springs to examine the relationships between surface water and plant communities and how they are associated with the cultural heritage of indigenous nations.

Morgan is interested in the intersection of plants, water and people through cultivating community relationships and inter-generational knowledge. Her current botanical expertise includes plants in the Great Basin, Colorado Plateau, Blackland Prairie and Post Oak Savannah, and incorporating their multicultural uses and ecological relevance across geologic time and geographic space.

In her free time, she can be found learning from her mentors.
