The Department of Biology hosted the EcoSuperior Day Campers for an afternoon of botanical discoveries. After touring the Claude E. Garton Herbarium (LKHD) to learn about plant preservation, archiving, storage, and digitization, the campers learned about plant identification. With dichotomous keys in hand, teams headed to the John W. Haggerty Arboretum for a scavenger hunt activity.
Special thanks to our summer student and Biology Major with a Concentration in Plant Sciences, Myles Cummins, for helping out the biology technicians (S.Walford, K.Dysievick) with the planning and running of this activity. We are hoping to see some of the camp participants here at Lakehead University in a few years!
