Mini Ornaments Upon a Holiday Tree

The holiday tree with all its creative ornaments

The holiday tree with all its creative ornaments!

This time of year is full of spirit and creativity. We like to indulge ourselves with fun, small projects like the Conservation Holiday Ornaments. All these ornaments were made within our department by Jody Beenk, Lucy David, Dan Essig, Bill Voss, Susan Hanson, Bu Wilson, Cynthia Mosier and other conservation workers.
