Flora of Our National Parks

Geum trifolium - prairie smoke (Yellowstone National Park), watercolor by Constance Sayas

In collaboration with the National Park Service, United States Botanic Garden is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service by showcasing some of the plant species and communities found at the more than 400 national parks. Among the 66 artists/illustrators exhibiting the 79 pieces, we have several connected to our BI-community: Constance Sayas (2 pieces),  Michael Campbell, Susan Rubin, Suzanne Stutzman (2 pieces), Vanessa Martin and Mervi Hjelmroos-Koski. The exhibit is displayed from February 18 to October 2, 2016 at the Conservatory West Gallery.
The complete list of participants, species exhibited and the connection to national parks can be seen here

Congratulations to each and every participant!
