Through last month’s Giving Tuesday Campaign, we hope to build a new Native Plant Garden outside the Visitor’s Center. We also hope to make the work of the Herbarium Group available to the public by creating an exhibit of their pressings inside the Visitor’ Center. A display would rotate dried specimen examples of each ‘plant’ present in the park. The display would feature a description of the plant anatomy and it’s growth habit, it’s historical significance (if applicable) to indigenous peoples and settlers, medicinal properties (if any), forage values (if any), scientific and/or common name meaning and significance (if any) and photograph in the field.
We are always being asked for information about the plants in this stunning provincial park, and we know that this display would be greatly used and appreciated by park visitors.
Even though Giving Tuesday has passed, you can still direct your donation to the Herbarium Project. Click the button below and choose “Herbarium Project” under “Fund.”
