A Pressing Matter
Learn some of the history and importance of herbaria with Lauren Spitz, Collections Manager at the Chrysler Herbarium at Rutgers University. A herbarium is a collection of preserved plants stored, catalogued, and arranged systematically for study. Lauren will demonstrate proper collection and pressing techniques for all different types of plant material as well as how to mount and store the specimens. Those attending will mount their own specimens to take home.
