We have been so fortunate to have such a dedicated group of volunteers ! I want to thank you all for showing up each week and helping us process all the piles of specimens that need work. From species identification workshops through databasing, mounting and filing, their hours of effort maintain the herbarium as a useful scientific resource.
Thanks to Elizabeth and Gart who organize our monthly plant identification workshops, Eileen and Karla who make art out of science, and Beverly and Clay who have stuck with the databasing despite so many technical glitches!
It seems like the end of term just now, as Karla is off home to Mexico and Beverly is off to survey birds over the summer. It looks like it will be fairly quiet here over the summer, but I hope to see familiar faces and new collections in the fall!
Feel free to drop by the herbarium on Wednesdays over the summer !
