Nothing says love like a science valentine

What says LOVE more than a microbe? As a little bit of ecosystem fun, we introduce our series of science valentines, based on the educational guidebook called Living Colors: The Microbes of Yellowstone, produced by the Montana Institute on Ecosystems, Montana EPSCoR, the MSU Thermal Biology Institute and the Yellowstone Association.

Download and share with your favorite science-y pals!











Our partners at the Thermal Biology Institute have all the valentines for download! Visit
