AT MAPLEWOOD NATURE CENTER, 2659 E. 7TH STREET, 55119

TUESDAY, JUNE 18, 3:30PM–4:30PM

Learn how to collect and preserve botanical specimens for herbarium records and identification purposes. What collection equipment will I need? What plant parts are needed? How do I press to prevent damage and color loss? What other information should I record? How do I submit a specimen to a herbarium? Bring your own plant press if you’d like to press a sample to take home. Highly recommended for plant blitz participants.
