We meet to find, photograph and collect plant specimens at each stage of their development at Cranbourne Gardens, while ensuring relevant details – such as their locations, appearance, substrate they are found on, and habitat – are recorded. These specimens are then dried and mounted for herbarium collections at Cranbourne Gardens and the National Herbarium.
Anyone who is keen to participate in this very important and interesting activity is welcome to join the group.
When we meet
The Herbarium Collectors meet on the 1st Monday of the month from 10am to 3pm at the Elliot Centre.
