Exploring pollinator pathways

A collaboration between the University of St. Thomas' Sustainable Communities Partnership (SCP) and their Pollinator Path.

In the Spring of 2019 Doreen Schroeder and Catherine Grant of the University of St. Thomas (UST) Biology department reached out to Maria Dahmus, Director of SCP, to collaborate on a student research project. They wanted to develop methods of community engagement for their pollinator path. 

As the SCP Artist-in-Residence I was able to spearhead a project that would result in usable illustrations for print and web, as well as a published activity guide that could be made available to young and old who wanted to learn more about pollinators on the path and in their communities. 

I digitally illustrated and designed the entire guide, using student research from the General Biology and Plants, Food, and Medicine courses. 


This series has also been turned into exhibitions featured at the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO) and the University of St. Thomas Art History Gallery.
