Explore the world of pressed plants and flowers, and make your own personalized gifts and cards for the holiday season. Take a tour of the Hyde Herbarium with Herbarium Manager Eve Rickenbaker and learn about how and why pressed plant specimens are preserved. She will show you the basics of selecting plants for pressing, the pressing and drying process, and finally how to mount a herbarium specimen.

You will also be able to choose and mount a specimen of your own, complete with an official herbarium label. Pressed plants make wonderful cards, so you will also have the chance to create holiday notecards to give away or keep. (Retail value of materials taken home: $100)
