Friends of the Fowler Herbarium

Over the last few decades, volunteers from both the student community and the general public have played an important role in running the herbarium.
 
The "friends" of the herbarium perform the essential day-to-day chores of mounting, identifying and cataloguing specimens, and in return,  gain experience in plant taxonomy and biodiversity.

Through their efforts, the volunteers not only keep the facility running, but form an important link between the herbarium and the broader Kingston community.
 
A major task currently underway is the creation of an on-line database and digitizing of specimens of all of our herbarium specimens.  The Friends group has not been active for a while and we hope to revivify it in the near future.
