Flora lovers unite! The Council of Park Friends plant and garden expert Debby will lead a 2-part (August 8 and 29 at 10am) class on how to create your own preserved plant collection. This class will focus on the methods used when collecting herbaceous plants for an herbarium but participants will also be able to use their plants for art or other display purposes. The first class (8/8) will be out in the field where you will learn how to collect plants, document them, and either bring them home for pressing or press them in the field. The 2nd class (8/29) will be inside, where you will mount the dried plants, prepare labels, and discuss storage and organization. There is a single fee of $5 for the 2 classes and supplies will be included. Space is very limited; please email Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot in advance.
There is a $4 per car entry fee to the park on the weekends.
*We will be supplying herbarium sheets, labels and glue. Participants should bring their own notebook for field notes and should bring a pencil (not pen).
