Once mounted, herbarium specimens are sorted into plant families and then by genus, species, and location. Having each specimen in its correct cabinet and folder is essential for research. Sorting and filing is also a great way to learn about plants!
Space is limited at these workshops, and registration is required. The Herbarium is located on the third floor of the Aven Nelson building, on the UW campus.
