Friends of the Rocky Mountain Herbarium

  

The Friends of the Rocky Mountain Herbarium was formed in October, 2015, with a goal of fostering local volunteerism, formalizing region-wide interest and support for the RM, and communicating information about the Herbarium to members and the larger community. The Friends host occasional open houses at the Herbarium, speakers, and activities of interest to botanists, gardeners and plant enthusiasts.
To receive emails about Friends’ up-coming events, and to receive the quarterly newsletter, send an email to RMFriends@uwyo.edu, or call the RM at 307-766-2236.
The newsletters are also available below.

As part of the plant archiving process, the RM has expanded their Imaging Lab. We now have two light boxes and two cameras to capture a digital image of each plant specimen.

Rocky Mountain Herbarium Volunteer Program

 

The Rocky Mountain Herbarium volunteer program celebrated our first inaugural year Thursday, Jan 21, 2016- Jan 26, 2017! With 5,190 volunteer hours logged the first year! With dedicated volunteers from the community, we've been making progress at processing a backlog of over 300,000 thousand dried plant specimens. We also held a conifer identification workshop at our last open house. Attendance was a huge success, shoulder to shoulder. From that successful night, more volunteers have joined!

Next Friends event

The Friends of the Herbarium will host Herbarium Night events this winter, starting on Thursday, January 26, 2017. This will be an opportunity to socialize with like-minded plant enthusiasts, learn a bit about plant identification, and have fun. Everyone is welcome!

If you can’t make it, but would like to share suggestions or comments, or if you have questions, we’ll be glad to hear from you! We can be reached at RMFriends@uwyo.edu.
