An independent study project report by The Martha J. Wallace Endowed Plant Propagation Intern (2011-2012)


The purpose of this project was to update and improve the web presence for the Dorrance H. Hamilton Fernery at the Morris Arboretum. To do this I first evaluated the resources already present on the website, and then researched how other gardens and institutions utilize their online resources. Using this information I created a new design template for the website, which included an interactive comprehensive timeline feature, a downloadable self-guided tour, and external resource links. Once fully implemented the new Fernery website will be a place for people to visit and learn about the structure, the history, and the fern collection housed within the Dorrance H. Hamilton Fernery.
