We need your wildflower pictures to complete our page!

At the 2015 Y.E.S. Celebration of Sustainable Schools Conference, we gave out bookmarks that could be planted to grow wildflowers. We would love to share photos of the plants that grew from your bookmarks on our website. If you would like to share a photograph of your wildflowers on our website, please email your photo(s), along with the name of the photographer to be credited, to yes.sustainableschools@gmail.com. *Note: if you would like to be credited as anonymous, please indicate so in your email submission.
