A photo-documentary of Minnetrista's nature center : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
The Nature Center at Minnetrista is a six acre section of the community park located in Muncie, Indiana, where three major East Central Indiana habitat types have been reconstructed; prairie, wetland, and forest. Most of the visitors to this area at Minnetrista are not fully aware of the vast biodiversity located within the Nature Center. For my senior project I created an informational guide featuring common native plants species and a few animal species that are found in Minnetrista's Nature Center. Through the use of photography, Adobe InDesign, and research, I produced a guide that conveys facts about species location and characteristics in the forest and prairie areas. A copy of the final guide was given to Minnetrista to have available for visitors to use.
