Product Description

Whitebark pines, growing in twisted beauty on the mountainsides and high ridges of Crater Lake National Park, are in peril. Though these trees live in a harsh environment, many are hundreds of years old. To reproduce, they rely on help from a noisy gray bird, the Clark's Nutcraker. Nutcrackers pry open the whitebark cones, tuck the fat-laden seeds into a special pouch beneath their tongues, then fly off to a clearing to cache the seeds. This is the birds' winter food supply, and they will retrieve the buried seeds to feed nestlings next spring. Seeds that are not eaten may grow into the next generation of whitebark pines. Sadly, these trees are declining throughout the West. Scientists estimate that by 2050 the number of whitebarks in Crater Lake National Park will be less than half what it was in 1900. At least three problems are converging to imperil this species.

The image for this puzzle was adapted from a painting commissioned by the Crater Lake Institute.

This puzzle comes with a numbered key drawing and corresponding list to help you understand the painting better. It also features an interpretive essay by the artist that takes you on a nature walk right in your own home.
