Amy Highland, Director of Collections and Conservation Lead at Mt. Cuba Center
Amy Highland is a conservation liaison, connecting rare and endangered plants with people (and sometimes insects). She’s an authority on native plants whose curiosity often drives her to create new ways for conservators to think of the natural world. She’s traveled throughout the temperate forests of North America to find rare plants in need of conservation as Mt. Cuba Center’s director of collections and conservation lead. A graduate of Purdue University’s Public Horticulture program, Amy has dedicated her life to conserving plants and preventing extinction events.
