If you have need for an extremely talented artist to help you with graphic design, we would like to suggest Sharon Thompson. When Sharon heard our presentation to the the Torrey Pines Docents in 2009, she was inspired to help. Recognizing the importance of the work at hand and seeing the need of the Institute's image to match its mission, Thompson volunteered to design a new logo for us. We think the manzanita, wrentit, and bobcat illustrate exactly what we want to do…to help others to better appreciate the wonderful beauty that can be found in the chaparral!
If you want to immerse yourself in the aromatic spirit and traditions of California's chaparral wildlands, this is the way to do it. We have personally tested this fragrance and found it to be truly beautiful. Both the guys and girls at the Chaparral Institute love it. You can obtain a sample or a full bottle at Roxana Illuminated Perfume. Buy a bottle and a portion of the purchase is donated to us!
A seriously fun card game about nature and ecology for 2-4 players, ages 12 and up
This is a game about flowers and trees, mountains and rivers, parrots, rainbows, people and the way that all of these many pieces of the natural world are connected to each other. It’s also a game of challenges. You’ll face earthquakes, fires, the occasional evil squirrel, and the craftiness of your friends.
