Coloring Page: The ABCs of Ohio Plants & Animals | S

We’re giving you some fun coloring activities! Here, you’ll find a fun coloring sheet featuring the ABCs of Ohio’s native flora and fauna.

One of the earliest spring wildflowers, spring beauties (Claytonia virginica) or Virginia spring beauties are incredibly common in Hamilton County. The flowers of this species are an important early spring source of nectar for pollinating insects, mostly small native bees and some flies. It’s no wonder these delicate Ohio wildflowers seem to attract tiny insects – spring beauties are only about a half-inch in width!

April is Ohio Native Plant Month, a vision dedicated to building public awareness and communicating the importance of native plants in our state. Great Parks is proud to be a partner of this movement.

We’re supporting Ohio Native Plant Month through our 100,000 Tree Challenge. This challenge is in response to the United Nations 2020 International Year of Plant Health to plant 1.2 trillion trees. To recognize this effort, Great Parks will be planting more than 900 native trees this year.
