What type of work will I be doing as a Volunteer?
Because our herbarium contains a collection of preserved botanical specimens (it’s like a plant library) from Saskatchewan, other parts of Canada and from around the world, our goal is to introduce volunteers to the basic techniques to prepare plant specimens to become part of the collection.
The tasks primarily include preparing and mounting specimens. Depending on your abilities and as you learn your work, you may be asked to perform additional duties, such as maintenance of the herbarium library and/or administrative work.
