Julia Galloway: Endangered Species of Pennsylvania

Oct 4th - Nov 17th, 2019

These are commemorative plates for the species of Pennsylvania that are either endangered, venerable or of concern as determined by the US Fish & Wildlife agency and the Natural Heritage Program of Pennsylvania*. I am focused on only local species, species in ‘my back yard,' but here I've chosen a Pennsylvania, not my home state, on which to focus. This wall display holds commemorative plates from 358 species.

We do need to have some hope during a time of uncertainty; on the back of each plate there is a brief easy about the species in general, as well as information about what we can do to support their repopulation.
