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.
The Rocky Mountain Herbarium volunteer program celebrated our second year! We have over 12,000 volunteer hours logged! 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!
