Butterfly Art & Research – Keaton Close, 16


Keaton researched butterflies and then created art pieces, including a self-portrait, which incorporated the species she studied.

From Keaton, about her TeenNat experience:

“When I grow up, I want to purse being a wildlife specialist like Steven (Hammerich), his job seems so fun to me, riding around on the 4 wheeler by himself, setting up cameras to view the wildlife.”
