Students and staff at the University of Lincoln will be able to learn how to mount Lincolnshire Herbarium specimens on Wednesday 1st May 2019.

The workshop will be led by the Natural History Museum’s Kath Castillo and participants will be taught how to arrange, stick and label collected plant specimens.

Attendees’ completed mounted specimens could even be displayed in the Natural History Museum, London, as part of the historical herbarium for the future!

No booking is required and drop-ins are welcome between 11.00 am and 3.00 pm in the Minerva Building ground floor on campus.

This training session is just one of many in a project between the university and the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, as a result of National Lottery Heritage Funding. The project aims to preserve Lincolnshire’s botanical heritage and inspire and train future botanists and future events can be found online: https://www.lincstrust.org.uk/what-we-do/love-lincs-plants.
