Last year, Joanne Marras Tate, Robert Buehler and Mathew Sharples, were selected by NEST to develop a Campus Field Guide. Joanne is part of the Communication Department, Robert from Art and Art History, and Mathew recently completed his Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. The three of them merged their expertises to create a small sample of species from our campus, showcasing intricate relationships. A couple of months ago, we shared this field guide with you, so that anyone can use it with their family or friends, to learn a bit more about who lives in your backyard, celebrating your life and theirs. Today we are happy to announce a new iteration in this wondrous project: a coloring book. You can now not only learn about who lives in your backward but color them. There are both a Spanish and an English version of the coloring book that you can download and print. What are you waiting for! Furthermore, every Wednesday—starting today, September 30—we are releasing a video of the authors discussing their journey—via Facebook, and YouTube below. There are five of them!
