Herbarium Open House
Explore ways that scientists use plants to study climate change during a behind-the-scenes visit to the Steere Herbarium, one of the largest collections of specimens that have recorded plant life on our planet for the past 300 years.
See mosses and lichens from the changing landscapes of the Arctic, wild relatives of crops that could be studied to develop more sustainable agriculture, and species that no longer grow on Earth. Try your hand at some of the methods scientists use to study these plants, and participate in our citizen science projects that help us digitize our collections and make them an online resource for climate researchers around the world.
Included with All-Garden Pass Admission.
This event is part of the Food, Land and Nature-Based Solutions program of Climate Week NYC.
