Pollinator Mural

Next time you’re downtown, take a look at the wonderful Pollinator Mural on the corner of Texas and Broadway. GNPS participated with the Southwestern New Mexico Audubon Society, the Grant County Beekeepers and the Grant County Archaeological Society on a mural celebrating pollinators and native plants and addressing the issue of climate change. Aldo Leopold High School students produced the mural under the direction of art instructor Allison Phillips. The dedication of this mural was held on October 26 and included a much-appreciated plant give-away.
