Anthems and emblems

Jack-in-the-pulpit is the floral emblem of the Huron Valley Chapter of the Michigan Botany Club.  Now we discover we also have an anthem!  Written around 1983 by Jocelyn Baker, set to the tune of "The Band Plays On".

MBC, SEC, walking along
  As the plants grow on.
We walk through the woods
  And the fields and the bogs
As the plants grow on.
 
We must not destroy them;
  We want to enjoy them.
We look for them
  All seasons long.
 
We like to find rare ones
  Endangered and fair ones,
                                                                                  The plants grow on.
 
The Botanizer. Words by Jocelyn Baker
 
Great!
