For those in the neighboorhood and interested "Grand Canyon's Green Heart: The Unsung Legacy of Plants" (Arizona) -- Although better known for its grand vistas and geologic wonders than for its botanical riches, the Grand Canyon is home to more plants than any other national park and to nearly half of all the plants that grow in Arizona. Often beautiful, sometimes treacherous, plants transform sunlight into energy and thus serve as the basis for all animal life on Earth. A special exhibition opening at Kolb Studio in Grand Canyon National Park introduces the fascinating world of canyon plants and the botanists who have studied and protected them, and celebrates the art of botanical illustration. "Grand Canyon's Green Heart: the Unsung Legacy of Plants" can be seen at Kolb Studio, July 2 through August 31.
