For my pressed plants, I chose some that I encountered while on a walk near the Chena Lake flood control project in North Pole. The flat area directly to the east of the embankment has small clusters of black spruce and birch trees, and is full of wildflowers in the areas with no trees. To gather and press the specimens, I brought a notebook with me that I stored them in throughout my walk. When I got home, I got a few books together and used them to press the plants down flat.
Here are the plants I chose to press out of the many that I saw in that area.
