NYC’s Extinct Blooms in the NYT

NYC’s Extinct Blooms in the NYT . . .

New York City’s wildflowers have made the op-ed page of today’s Sunday edition of the New York Times.

Mariellé Anzelone, an urban conservation biologist and the executive director of NYC Wildflower Week, penned a short essay about a dozen native species of wildflowers now extinct in the region. Her words are illustrated by Wendy Hollender, a botanical illustrator and the author of Botanical Drawing in Color. You can view their collaboration here:
