The word has spread around the region about our Venus flytrap campaign to raise money for a comprehensive survey of the plant in our Green Swamp preserve. You can read all about our Sci Fund Venus flytrap project here. We are so happy to have help from one local photographer, Kelvin Taylor, who is donating all of the proceeds from his work until Dec. 15th to our campaign.
Kelvin Taylor is a native of North Carolina and took an interest in nature when he was just a boy. Growing plants from seed, observing insects, and exploring the woods near his home was a favorite pastime in his childhood days. Today gardening, hiking, and photography are his favorite activities.
In college Kelvin first visited the Great Smoky Mountains National Park during the spring wildflower season he became captivated by the myriad of plant life in the natural world. That visit to the mountains led him to study botany and photography and today the thrill of photographing wildflowers, waterfalls and nature scenes is as strong as his first encounter so many years ago. You can read more about Kelvin on his blog “Exploring Scenic North Carolina” and see all of his amazing photos at his Red Bubble gallery or at his Pbase gallery.
Kelvin is very generously donating all proceeds from his Red Bubble gallery to our Sci Fund Venus flytrap project until it ends on the 15th of December. We can’t thank Kelvin enough for his generous offering to help protect one of the coolest plants in the world.
So check out Kelvin’s gallery, all his cards and prints are available this month at a special Holiday price and would make great gifts this season. It is like two gifts in one!
Thanks so much Kelvin!
