The Norton-Brown Herbarium on our campus was established in 1901, and is one
of the oldest in the country. An herbarium is both a collection of preserved
plant specimens, and the scientific institute that stores and researches the
specimens. The specimens in an herbarium are used for reference and
research. Come take a guided tour with herbarium curator Dr. Tanja Schuster
to see this amazing and historic collection, and learn about the methods
used to document and preserve our plant heritage.
