University Herbarium Hack: 'How To' Workshop

2:30pm-3:30pm on Friday 26 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Join the Curator of the University Herbarium, Dr Lauren Gardiner, to learn how you can contribute to this exciting and new-for-Cambridge citizen science project. 

Find out step-by-step how you can help transcribe the information on high-res images of our plant specimens from the comfort of your home, so we can start to contribute our 1.1 million specimens of plants to global biodiversity science, botany, and heritage research.

From deciphering 18th century handwriting to labels typed in a tropical forest between World Wars, help us to unlock the Herbarium’s secrets.
