“Adkins Arboretum announces that Easton resident Sue Wyndham has joined the staff as Land Stewardship Coordinator. A Delaware native, Wyndham brings more than 10 years of work in horticulture, conservation and outreach to the Arboretum. After completing the Longwood Gardens Professional Gardener Training Program, she delved into public horticulture, greenhouse management, teaching and private garden design before pursuing a degree in landscape architecture. She earned a master’s in landscape architecture from the State University of New York, College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse in 2006. She joined the Arboretum in May.
Wyndham’s responsibilities include land and invasive species management, rare plant mapping, plant accession and maintaining and interpreting diverse plant communities. She also is working to extend the Arboretum’s reach into the community and to demonstrate how the scientific and technical aspects of landscape architecture relate to the natural world.
Wyndham “brings a wealth of experience in ornamental horticulture and a commitment to environmental stewardship,” said Arboretum Executive Director Ellie Altman. “She is a tremendous asset to the Arboretum in meeting its public education mission.”
