My First Herbarium: A Workshop for Families


The National Herbarium of Victoria, situated in Melbourne Gardens, is home to a collection of more than 1.5 million dried plant specimens.

Ignite your inner botanist and start your own collection in this interactive family-friendly workshop. Venture through the Gardens to discover the process that botanists use for studying, identifying, and classifying plants. Complete your discovery with the creation of your own herbarium page to press and preserve at home.

This program has a COVIDSafe plan however it may be subject to changes in accordance with government restrictions.

This event is presented by Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria as part of Victoria Nature Festival 11-26 September 2021.
