Introduction

                                                      

                      "Take nothing but pictures.  Leave nothing but footprints."  (unknown)

  

The manager of the Parks & Recreation department where you work has decided to put together a field guide of local plants. The guide will be made available to the community, so people walking in the parks can use it as a reference. You and two of your colleagues have been assigned the task of designing the guide; since this is a rush project (summer is just around the corner), you have been given two weeks to complete this assignment.
