Worth Knowing: Hanover Garden Club hosting Amazon journey through Mee's drawings and paintings at Montshire

Home to more than half of the world’s species of plants, animals and insects, the Amazonian rain forest supports a biodiversity unparalleled by any other region in the world.  British artist Margaret Mee (1909-1988) made 15 voyages into the Amazon basin from 1955 - 1988 and lived there for 30 years.  Her stunning, scientifically accurate botanical drawings and paintings catalog the diversity of the Amazon basin while her diaries and journals document her concern about the environmental damage done by mining and deforestation.
