Herbarium Tour and Plant-Mounting Workshop
The Arrowhead Native Plant Explorers tour the Olga Lakela Herbarium at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Following the Herbarium tour at noon, they will meet at the Bagley classroom for a herbarium specimen-mounting workshop. Attendees can learn basic mounting practices for preservation in natural history collections. The focus of the workshop will be mounting specimens from the ongoing “Flora of Glensheen” project. No prior plant identification or herbarium experience necessary. Materials will be provided. Pressed plant specimens created at the workshop will become a part of the permanent Olga Lakela Herbarium collection.
