Beginning in 2011 Alice Berkson began taking photos at the Florida – Orchard prairie on campus next to the President’s House. The photos were taken each month from the same locations beginning in 2013. The two years prior to that all 12 months are not represented. A few photos are missing including all of October 2015. A few extra shots are occasionally included of unusual situations or plants.

The photos are in yearly folders. Individual photos are labeled with the date first YYYY-MM-DD so that they will sort in order.
Photos were taken at the four corners. At the North corners along Florida Avenue shots were taken east to west and west to east as well as diagonally from NE looking SW, and from NW looking SE. At the southern corners, only the diagonal photos were taken.
The resolution on the photos is high so that small sections can be enlarged to identify plants and other features.
As of this writing the series is complete from 2011 through 2020.
