Putting Down Roots was an evolving exhibit of artistic fiber representation of plants that are beneficial for a healthy environment. These plants have extensive root structures, provide beautiful habitat and contribute to the diversity of our landscapes. Local artists used their talents to create pieces that help bring awareness about these plants relation to water quality and biodiversity.
