After helping at a gingerbread-man-decorating session at the arboretum earlier this month, I was inspired to create some cookies of my own for our Nature Guides pot-luck luncheon today.
I based my designs on the 4 biomes of our CEEP program. (Childrens' Environmental Education Program)
This program is for 3rd graders in the Fullerton School District. They visit 4 different biomes at the arboretum to learn about plant adaptations: The desert, the tropical rainforest, the pond, and the coniferous forest.
Clockwise from the top: pinecones, tropical leaf (drip-tip!), opuntia cactus, water lily
