US Govt Coloring Books

Uncle Sam Wants You (to color)! Many US government agencies have created coloring books for your pleasure, and Evergreen State has an index. Some of my favorites include Sea Turtles/No No Honu Kai, in English and Hawaiian; Celebrating Wildflowers, which has both line drawings and coloring guides; The Beagle Brigade (pdf); and, of course, Noxious Weeds are Everybody's Problem (pdf).
