In 2007 Botanical Art and Illustration Program contributed to a educational outreach program at NOAA (please see November 18th 2007).
The activity and poster are now available on-line. This exercise involving both illustrations and science is a part of the POET program (Protect Our Environmental Treasures) which is series of activities designed for middle and high school students.
With this contribution the Botanical Art and Illustration Program also earned the nomination for 2008 NOAA Environmental Hero Award.
It takes a gifted artist to become a great teacher and those who dare to teach never cease to learn.
