Flower Power

We had a special visitor in the herbarium today — JosEllen Turrentine, a Girl Scout who is working on her “Flowers” merit badge. We looked at some of the plant specimens, practiced using a plant press, and talked about the herbarium’s recent “Flora of the Domain” project.  It was fun meeting and visiting with this lovely young plant enthusiast! JosEllen’s mom Melissa is a botanist herself, so the two of them will work together to complete most of the requirements for the badge.IMG_4016
