Local artist Laura Vollset offered her time and talent to create an illustrated look at the key species of Elkhorn Slough – from birds to plants to mammals. She created this wonderful poster in the spring of 2014.
About the Artist
“This project with ESF was a wonderful opportunity for me to dive back into the world of illustration after having twins in 2012. Juggling art and motherhood has been quite a challenge, but I am thrilled to be able to contribute to the work that ESF does and to help highlight the amazing natural environment that surrounds us in the Bay Area.” -Laura Vollset
