Thanks to everyone who has donated so far! You have donated more than $2,800! We really appreciate the support.

With the funds you have donated we will be able to process a large portion of the new specimens donated to the herbarium. You've helped to make this information available to researchers, land managers and anyone interested in plants. Thank you so much!

Almost half-way!

Monocots and flower-free plants!

September 30, 2016

To everyone who has donated, thank you so much!

We have raised enough money to mount the most recent collections of monocots, ferns and algae! Your donations will help us get these data into the herbarium and online quickly.

If you haven't donated yet, there's still time! We have a lot of new material we are excited to process. You can help!

Please donate today!
