As usual, the guide below follows a specific order, so I suggest you stick to it in order to avoid getting lost.

The original colony of the Psychonauts (aka Green Needle Gulch) is divided into three sections, as you are about to see.

For each card, you’ll find the actual location on your map, the location’s name, and instructions on how to get the collectible.
