Remembering Keith Board

In January 2019, we lost a fixture of the northern Indiana and Chicago region botanical community. Keith Board, a past regular contributor to this blog, passed away at age 58 after an extended illness, leaving a major void for all who knew him. The tribute video at the link below features Keith's plant photographs and shows him with numerous other botanists and naturalists from Indiana and the Chicago region.

He is missed very much. Who will find the things that only Keith was able to?

Absolutely, Ken. I was recently at Potato Creek State Park and found a large population of Montia filiformis.... exactly the thing Keith would have found. He might have led me to that population.
