Young artists depict endangered plants

Art in the employ of science is what botanical illustration is all about. The pre-K through 5th graders who participated in this year’s Fairchild Challenge learned about South Florida’s endangered plants by drawing them. I peeked at the display last week and found a wonderful colorful interpretation of nature that could grace a museum. Take a look at some of the work.
