Very interesting Jessie! I had never heard the word 'herbaria' before. I can just imagine how exciting your work must be and it is truly something to be proud of. Being from southern Indiana, I doubt that I will get a chance to visit the museum, but it sure has some nice exhibits I would like to see.

I loved reading your blurb about this exhibit! It's great to read a post for an event that has such a contagious enthusiasm about it! Congrats on such an important exhibit and I'm sure that herbalists making herbaria nowadays will appreciate their historical routes. Hurray!
