My Colby-Sawyer Experience

“Your work... is to resist the easy answer, to seek out the truth... just as the author's work is to face the blank page with faith and optimism.”
Humanities Instructor David Elliott

175th Celebration

In 2012 the college celebrated 175 years as an institution of teaching and learning. Visit the 175th website for more information and to view photos of the events.

This is the index for the fall wildflowers. These are flowers growing in the wild, and the pictures were taken in fall condition, even though they may have been in bloom in the summer. The index shows you both the common name and the scientific name. They are alphabetized by common name.
A click on the common name will take you to the plant's individual page where you will find pictures as well as descriptive information.
