Herbarium At Home: A Beginner’s Guide

Posted in How To on July 30, 2020, by Garrett Barziloski

A herbarium specimen can represent so many things—a record of your adventures, a piece of wall art, or the beginning of your collection.

And creating your own is simple. Today, join Catherine Ahn, Herbarium Aide in our Steere Herbarium, to learn how to collect, prepare, mount, and preserve plant specimens just like we do at NYBG. These important botanical records help us better understand our world, both as evidence of plant history and as a way to track how plants and plant populations change going into the future.
