Alcatraz Gardens Class Series: Herbarium and Plant Pressing
Events
Thu, Aug 29 8:00am-12:00pm
Alcatraz Gardens
This class will have two parts. The first part will be a quick class about herbaria, what they are, how they are used, and a demonstration for how to create herbarium sheets. The second part will entail the students making their own herbarium sheets using plants pre-pressed from Alcatraz gardens. Finally, there will be an optional section where people can bring their own books or other pressing materials and learn how to not-so-scientifically press plants for their own enjoyment.
