Milkweed Visitors, by Mary Holland, uses simple text and exquisite photography to provide a close look at many of the the creatures that visit her common milkweed patch in Vermont. The text introduces concepts including predator, nectivore, herbivore and pollination. The book was designed for both home and classroom use: the pages are numbered and there is a glossary.

Her work in the field of environmental education has included employment with the Massachusetts Audubon Society and the Vermont Institute of Natural Science, where she directed the statewide Environmental Learning for the Future (ELF) elementary school program for several years. Mary's self-designed hands-on “Knee-high Nature Programs” were given to K - 3rd graders through Vermont schools and libraries.

Mary's nature photographs have been in several shows and are used in her greeting card business. Milkweed Visitors, which Mary both wrote and photographed, is her first children's book.
