How important one little bird is to forest health! By spreading seeds of the endangered whitebark pine that are more resistant to destructive bark beetles and blister rust, Clark’s nutcracker leads to a healthier forest – critical to holding snowpack and regulating snowmelt, which in turn effects the water supply downslope. By depicting one of our winged saviours in a precarious position, I sought to remind us of the fragile interconnectedness of nature.
