Collect and preserve a plant, much like researchers have done for hundreds of years for identification, research, and education.
|Hints for uses in your library||Botanists from the National Museum Wales find pressing plants to be a popular outreach activity. They recommend using the pressed plants for greeting cards that people can take home with them and give as gifts. Another tip from the pros: when collecting your plant, make sure to document the location, date and time, and name of the person who collected it. That information must be preserved for science!|
