Black Lake Canyon Preserve: Ecological Habitats Panel

For their new interpretive panels at Kathleen’s Canyon Overlook in Black Lake Canyon Preserve, the Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County commissioned an illustration of the four habitats present in the reserve: Dunes, Peat Bog, Riparian Woodland/Wetland, and Coast Live Oak Woodland.  I researched the animals and plants that can be found in each of these habitats and composed representative scenes that flow from the woodlands through a riparian area, a peat bog, the dunes, to the sea.

The panels are scheduled to be placed in the preserve this summer.  This page will be updated with images of the completed panel when they are available.
