Dr. Clary’s career spans two decades in natural resources conservation. Before retiring, she oversaw the Center’s native plant conservation program aimed at preserving common and rare Texas plant species in the Wildflower Center seed bank for future use, managing aggressive, invasive plants and stewarding rare and endangered Texas plant species. With a strong commitment to education and public outreach, she regularly gives lectures about botany and native plants, and teaches with the Wildflower Center’s Go Native U educational program. Her previous professional experience includes stints at Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Texas Department of Transportation where she assessed environmental impacts of development projects on important natural resources including endangered species. She served as TXDOT’s lead biologist during her last two years with the agency and oversaw statewide compliance with the Endangered Species Act and other legislation. She has a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from Texas A&M University and a master’s degree in anthropology from the University of New Mexico. Clary also holds a doctorate from the University of Texas at Austin, where she studied speciation patterns, taxonomy and biogeography of yucca plants. While in New Mexico, she co-founded the Castetter Laboratory for Ethnobotanical Studies, a research lab devoted to the study of prehistoric subsistence and the origins of agriculture in the Southwestern United States.
