An amazing variety of art and photography from scratchboard to watercolors, cartoon art to stop-action photographs, will appeal to environmentalists of all ages. Works by Green Earth Book Award and honor book recipients depict topics as diverse as exploring every childs backyard, the reforestation of Kenya, protecting the tree kangaroos of Papua, New Guinea, and the melting ice of the Arctic. The Green Earth Book Award (GEBA) was created by The Nature Generation in collaboration with SU to get more books with a message of environmental stewardship into the hands of children and young adults and to connect authors with youth. The GEBA is the nations first annual awards for authors and illustrators whose books for children and young adults raise awareness of environmental stewardship, the beauty of our natural world and the responsibility that we have to protect it. Captivating young people through the imagery of words and pictures is central to reaching and inspiring the next generation. For more information contact the Ward Museum at 410-742-4988 or visit
