Better Learning Through Botany explores the use of visual science communication to increase public participation in conserving one of Oregon’s most diverse and threatened ecosystems. Budding botanists, seasonal workers, and volunteers need to learn and correctly identify over three-hundred potentially occurring plant species in order to effectively assist in even the simplest of monitoring or management tasks. Utilizing scientific illustration and translating complicated botanical terminology, this project aims to remove common communication roadblocks that have caused a disconnect between these dynamic habitats and the people living around them.
