(Master Naturalist Advanced Training)
The Cable Natural History Museum’s herbarium collection consists of over 1,000 pressed plants and other flora. How does a herbarium start? Begin at the Museum’s native plant gardens and start the first steps of preparing a herbarium specimen. Curator Mollie Kreb will provide instruction on proper collecting activity, label preparation, and pressing techniques. At the end of the day we will have our plants pressed and ready to dry for the next steps of the process (to follow next week). All materials provided. You don’t have to be a certified Master Naturalist to participate! Any adult learners are welcome. Meet at the Museum 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.  Register byJuly 13 by calling 715-798-3890 or go to  $40 member/$45 non-member.
