DHS Plants Final
When you are finished with the
final project, you will be able to identify and have an
understanding of 45 major plants on the DHS campus. By
following a guided
audio (and supplementary web-based) tour of the campus flora, I hope that you will gain a
better appreciation for these interesting plants and recognize
them throughout town.
You will put the 45
podcast recordings onto your iPod/mp3 player.

to a player.) As you walk around campus following
the numbered map and listening to the tour, you will
answer questions about each plant in your DHS Plants
