Trish Beckjord

Trish Beckjord’s work has always had a focus on conservation, restoration and integration of native plants in designed landscapes, which makes her well-suited to head up our Fox River Education and Outreach Initiative.

Trish built her experience in sustainable planning and site design through her work at Conservation Design Forum in Elmhurst, IL and the Ann Arbor office of JJR, both award-winning design, engineering and planning firms.  As the Native Plants and Green Infrastructure Specialist at Midwest Groundcovers LLC.  Trish has been expanding the market for the plants that we use and recommend for rain gardens, butterfly gardens, and healthy prairies, wetlands and woodlands.  Her enthusiasm is catching! 
 
Also an experienced public speaker, facilitator and writer, Trish currently writes a column for Midwest’s Natural Garden Natives™ monthly newsletter, and serves a variety of community organizations.  She works out of our Dickson-Murst Farm office in Montgomery.
