Rare Plant Painter


When Heeyoung Kim moved here from Korea, she expected to find vast Midwestern prairies. When she learned that prairie and woodland ecosystems were endangered, she launched a personal crusade to paint and preserve 200 rare native plants. Kim also launched a fundraising campaign for Project 200. Jay Shefsky has her story.
