Research

Thanks to completing the Master Naturalist Program at the Audubon Center, and to working in wildlife rehabilitation for the past 7 years, I am familiar with Connecticut's local species. Still, compiling a list of 80+ plants and animals to fill the wall was a big project. Editing everything down to fit 40 panels was difficult considering all the great options.

Each panel gets designed and rendered in Photoshop; each panel combines plants and animals and I tried to make meaningful pairings for most of the panels. Goldenrod attracts ladybugs, the adults and larvae of ladybugs feed on the aphids that hang out on the goldenrod.
