? I'm confused. Oh! I mentioned that I keep a plant list . . . I'll dig that up. It needs to be updated as I acquired 10 new plants last night . . .

I guess it was linrose who asked to see the poster list . . .

I like it a lot too. You are most welcome to use it.

We saw it at a welcome center, framed on the wall. I asked about it and the woman said that they had been handing them out for free but ran out. =( I took a picture of it with my cell phone to remember the idea...but so far, I can't find it.

Maybe I got confused. I mentioned a list --I was thinking the plant list. linrose asked about what list I was referring to. I didn't realize you had a list of what had visited your yard until I saw the one you just shared. I'm thrilled to see that too, but would love to have both lists here on this thread.

Great! I'd better start on my list before I get any more plants--adding 10 at a time sounds manageable...I haven't even begun my list yet! BTW, I love how you indicate if it was a volunteer or not.

Beautiful poster. Interesting visual aid for your nature presentations. Does your wife get into the habitat thing as well or does she just like you a lot?
Have you seen the species poster and trading card set that Illinois has available for teachers. The poster has a list of Illinois species and the kids can collect the cards with one species on each as they study. Like Pokemon cards or baseball cards.

P. S. Thanks for adding the enlarged list for us to be able to read.

I think my wife appreciates it and has grown to like it. I think at first she thought I was going to throw wildflower seeds out the window and stop mowing the grass But it is very much 'my thing'.

I have not seen the IL card set but would be interested in doing so.

The set originates with the Department of Natural Resources

DNR

Publication Descriptor Page: Illinois Natural Resource Trading Cards Set #4 (2009) - Electronic Documents of Illinois

A pdf of the poster for set #4. You get the poster and the trading cards when you send a request on a school letterhead.

Several teachers in our family throughout Illinois.

Thanks for both lists Tim. (Remember I'm a list freak too!)

Love the trading card idea. Good idea for kids/classrooms.

Still wondering about amelanchier's list, maybe I'll do a search but he has so many posts.
