A herbarium of the species which have been found growing in the reserve is kept in the Biology and Marine Environmental Systems lab at Lester B. Pearson College. These students are floating a filamentous algal form onto a herbarium sheet in a tank of seawater. The algae are then dried between blotters in a drier with heat and circulating air.
