Citizen Science: Archiving Natural History Collections

Sunday, October 22, 2017

11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Citizen scientists are needed to help mobilize and archive “big-data” for plant research! Join the NYBG Herbarium staff for an intensive all-day specimen transcription workshop. Learn about botanical collecting, then embark on virtual expeditions to document the historic collections of famous botanists on their forays across the country, and around the world! This is a free event.
