(Plant Identification for everyone) Home
Wendy Dreskin has developed these Flash Cards as part of her Junior Botanist program, offered to grammar school kids throughout Marin County. They’re an excellent way to acquaint yourself with 60 of the most common wildflowers you’ll find in Marin.
How To Print Your Own Flash Cards
Each link below brings up a PDF file that has a two-sided page – four pictures on the front and descriptions on the back.
· Click the printer icon (Or choose File|Print).
· Choose a printer.
· On the print options page, if you can print two-sided, choose that option and click [Print]. If the descriptions don’t line up with the photos, change the print options for how the printer flips the page.
· If you print one-sided, on the print options page, print only Page 1, then reinsert the paper so it will print on the other side, and print only Page 2. Check that the descriptions line up behind the photos, and try different orientations for the second printing if needed.
Once you figure out how to get descriptions on the back to line up with photos on the front, you’ll get best results with a color printer, using photograph paper. For really long life in the field you can get pages laminated at a printing store like Kinkos or FedEx.
