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

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.

You can easily recognize this blue Ohio wildflower because of its trumpet-shaped flower. Did you know? Unlike other wildflowers, the main pollinators of Virginia bluebells (Mertensia virginica) are butterflies. Because of the funnel-shaped flowers, bees have a difficult time getting to the nectar. Butterflies can easily reach the sweet nectar thanks to their long tongues.

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.
