This interactive exhibit invites visitors of all ages and abilities to become re-enchanted with the Appalachian forest. Twenty-four matching specimens were selected from the Floyd Bartley Herbarium (1930-1978) to match foliage collected by K-12 campers.
A multi-sensory passage through an Appalachian corridor combines symphonies of birds and insects with stories about outdoor life in Southeastern Ohio. Methodologies from the visual arts, environmental science and outdoor education engages us in a process of imagination, observation and collection. The companion collections, both snapshots of the regional biodiversity, span nearly a century.
