Have you heard of the New Mexico Native Plant Society? How about The Institute for Applied Ecology? Well, they are doing amazing things and we have teamed up with them to share their most recent project, the New Mexico Native Plant Coloring Book!
They worked with 29 artists from all throughout New Mexico to create unique, amazing drawings which capture the beauty of New Mexico Native Plants in a coloring book! But this is no ordinary coloring book ... each page featuring a different plant also includes a little bio for the plant - describing its natural coloring as well as its native habitat and other interesting facts! The coloring book also includes botanical terms, as well as a key in the beginning of the book to describe those terms. Color a picture and learn some botany while you do it.
Color with your kids, your partner, your friends, or yourself, there's a little something for everyone in there.
All proceeds from this effort directly fund student and intern scholarships to participate in the annual Native Plant Society Conference.
