Herbarium Lunch

Herbarium Lunch

Herbarium Lunch is our fun, informal and informative series of lunch hour talks on plants, plant research, and plant-related travel. Speakers are usually herbarium staff, researchers or volunteers, but sometimes are recruited from the university at large or the diverse Tucson community of people interested in plants.

Herbarium Lunch talks are held in the public area of Herring Hall on Thursdays, from 12 noon to 1 pm. Feel free to bring your lunch.

Want to give a presentation, or know of somebody who would like to be added to the UA Herbarium Listserv? Contact Shelley McMahon.
