IMBD 2011 Art Nears Completion
|John Muir Laws is hard at work on the 2011 art, and this Ruby-throated Hummingbird is just one of the species to be included. We'll be sharing the final piece with you later in December. |
As always, the poster will be available in Spanish and English. And because we've been receiving requests from Canada for information in French, we're working with partners to offer a downloadable French version.
Stay tuned for more news about the poster and 2011 Tshirt design.
