The series consists of 2597 colour slides dating from 1946 to 1988 and taken at variety of locations, including Beaverlodge Nursery and the Beaverlodge Experimental Station.

The slides were originally housed in 10 binders and 2 slide carousels. Although the order of the slides within the binders and carousels has been maintained, the order of the binders and carousels themselves was imposed by the archivist according to the content of each.
