June & December

Specimen Collecting Kit

$24.00 USD

For your tiny forager! This tiny specimen collecting kit fosters a love of collecting, observing, and preserving memories from outdoor adventures. Collect and preserve specimens found in the field with the pocket-sized tin, then use the contents to prepare, encapsulate, and display your finds. Each kit is meticulously assembled by hand into a 5.5" x 3.75" x 1" pocket-sized tin. Includes ten assorted glass display bottles and corks, stainless tweezers, 6 stainless specimen pins and instruction booklet.


Help children to learn to respect the environment and its offerings, leaving no trace behind. Never trespass, know where you can and can’t take from nature. Know before you go and follow all local, state, and federal laws. Minimize what you collect as not to disturb a microhabitat. Never collect live insects.

June & December was founded in 2014 by Katie and Nick Forte with an adventurous spirit and the idea that the most memorable gifts have a meaningful story to tell. Named after the months their children were born, they believe they are storytellers at heart, and strive to have their products do the talking. They aspire to have their goods remind you of a recent adventure, a memorable dinner, or a fond childhood memory and hope their stories connect with yours as we celebrate the many ways nature connects us.
