CU Boulder Herbarium Tour

Dina Clark, Collection Manager, has agreed to give us a herbarium tour at the University of Colorado Museum, Boulder, on Friday, March 1 at 1pm to 3pm. We will get the basics of what a herbarium is for, how it is organized, how it can be used, and the proper techniques for handling herbarium specimens. She will also help us pull some specimens to look at which we have been seeing in the field for the last 2-3 times we have been out. I will need to give her an RSVP count on Thursday to let her know how many people we have coming.

Here is the Herbarium website address: http://cumuseum.colorado.edu/research/botany/

Here is a campus map: http://www.colorado.edu/campusmap/map.pdf

Claire Small Building is # 11, and Euclid Parking is # 30 (parking $1.75 per hr up to 3 hrs). Sometimes, you can find a metered parking spot on University east of Broadway, but be sure to use the parking kiosk and get a ticket for 2 hours (parking $1.50 per hr up to 3 hrs).

Do not mistake the Natural History Museum in the Henderson Building, for the correct site of the Botanical Collection in the Claire Small Building!!!

We should meet in the Basement of the Claire Small Building (west end) at 12:50pm.

    I live in Boulder, and campus is on the way to my child's school, where I pick her up at 3:15, so I'll just park on University and meet you there. Thanks for organizing this, and looking forward to meeting everyone.

    Hi, I'm a former botanist for the USFS and NPS in California, now a full-time stay-at-home mom for a child with special needs. I really miss botanizing, and am looking forward to a peak at the CU herbarium!
