Herbarium Collection

As part of my Environmental studies I was to make a Herbarium collection, which is a standard for a collection of pressed plants with identified qualities. I collected these fifty plants of trees, shrubs, herbs, mosses and lichens from my Boreal Forest region. Part of what led me into this program was that I have been studying local plant medicines and foods for a number of years. I used this large project as a way to further learn the medicines and with the aid of my books I documented interesting uses for each plant on their I.D. cards. Received a very high mark.
Used some artistry to create the outside box cover for some forest bling, which you can see here.
