EHSO's Free Nature and Environmental Clip Art

Clip Art, Photos and Graphics of Nature and Environment

horizontal rule

Many online clipart and photo collections are misleading, and actually want to charge you.  We took the time to check through all of these to ensure that they do provide images that can be used free of charge!  Most of these sites are government and public websites that provide clip art and photos, copyright free. We're still gathering information and links.   If you have any to add or suggest, please tells us via the feedback form!

Recycling and Environmental Management

Standard Recycling Signs - This page contains downloadable signs for recycling bins. The signs may be downloaded and used, copyright free, for any reasonable purpose.

Oil Spills Photos - Here are guided tours and photos taken by NOAA OR&R scientists, spill response experts, and colleagues.

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has quite a bit of free clip art: You are free to use these graphics as often as needed. If you do use them, please give the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources credit for the artwork. All clip art comes from three publications put out by the DNR. Here are direct links to it:

Plants - US Environmental Protection Agency and Purdue University - A detailed look at the plants typical of 11 different wetland types from bog to wet prairie. After an introduction to a particular type of wetland, the user can explore a list of species found in that ecosystem. Each entry gives detailed botanical information as well as a VGA or SVGA photo of the plant. The outstanding photos are identification quality and most were supplied by the Morton Arboretum. Examples help identify plant specimens, and expanded to include species found throughout the lower forty-eight States.

Not recommended:

Warning: Snap-Shot Wallpaper and FotoClipart.com's have online picture galleries, and desktop wallpaper gallery and screensavers, BUT they require you to download a Internet Explorer plugin, which may contain adware, spyware or viruses.  It may also be benign, but they don't provide an obvious justification for it, so I can't recommend them.  I never recommend that you click on anything that attempts to download software to your computer. You should be able to right click on images and use "save as".
