Members may submit up to 2 illustrations. Any traditional or digital illustrations are welcome. The works do not have to be strictly scientific in nature, they can be more fine art is you desire, as long as they feature the ecological importance of the species chosen for the theme.

Into the Woods Theme

Our trees and forests have a direct impact on the environment and climate. This exhibit depicts the ecological importance of woodlands, including trees, and other flora, fauna, and fungi, as well as ecosystem processes and conservation.

Examples of possible subjects:

  • Native beavers and wetlands
  • Invasive phragmites and water purification
  • Joe Pye weed as an important pollinator food and human medicinal herb
  • Ants – a nuisance at picnics, but their soil aeration skills and seed distribution make sure that once rare plants like trailing arbutus thrive.
  • There are lots of possible subjects here: trees, ferns, fungus, mosses, lichens, spiders, insects, birds, small animals, large animals, amphibians, reptiles, let’s help foster an appreciation for the great outdoors.
