Spring Break: Pressing Plants

Thursday, March 23: Pressing Plants | 12:00 pm

If preserved well, plant specimens can last hundreds of years in a museum. But how is this done? Learn how to collect responsibly, press plants, and label them with Linda Jennings, the Herbarium’s Assistant Curator of Vascular Plants & Algae.

This activity takes place in the Niche Café and outside – please dress accordingly!
