Pearl Pearson, a horticulture curator at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Gardens, has planted butterfly gardens since 1995. She says thousands of monarchs used to stop at the zoo in the fall.
For her 30 years of service doing these things and so many others, The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden recently recognized Pearl Pearson, Horticulture Curator.
She began working as a Horticulture Supervisor at the Zoo in December 1980. In 1989, she was promoted to Horticulture Curator, in charge of managing the Zoo's extensive plant collection and a staff of horticulturalists who work constantly to keep the Zoo's botanical areas beautiful and well-maintained. She also coordinates research, design and interpretation of the Zoo's plant collection for educational, research and conservation needs and contributes to designs of new projects and exhibits.
Pearson was also instrumental in helping the Zoo attain its American Association of Museums accreditation as both a living museum and a botanical garden in 1998. Only seven other zoos have this distinction.
"It's a challenging field and exciting because there is always something new to learn," Pearson said. "In addition, the Zoo family is made up of a great group of dedicated and passionate people, who work together to achieve good things for the Zoo environment and for conservation projects world-wide."
Pearson is the current president of the Oklahoma Horticultural Society, and is also a Professional Fellow of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and a professional member and past Conservation Chair of the Association of Zoological Horticulture. She lives in Oklahoma City with her husband, Eric and has a daughter, Jamie.
"I've had the pleasure of working with Pearl closely over the years, and have a lot of respect for her and her excellent work as Horticulture Curator," said Zoo Executive Director/CEO Dwight Scott.

Pearl Pearson, a horticulture curator at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Gardens, has been watching the monarch population decline.
Pearson has planted butterfly gardens at the zoo since 1995. It used to be thousands of monarchs that stopped at the zoo on their way south in the fall. But in recent years the number has dropped to hundreds, she said.
Last fall, the zoo tagged and released 388 monarch butterflies, 100 fewer than the previous year. Monarchs are tagged and tracked for research.
"It's scary what we're seeing right now," Pearson said.
Interview opportunities will be available with Kirkland Hall, President & Chairman of the Fred Jones Family Foundation; Alan Varsik, Assistant Zoo Director of the Oklahoma City Zoo; Dana McCrory, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Zoological Society and Pearl Pearson, Curator of Horticulture with the Oklahoma City Zoo.
