Memory Café takes you on a virtual tour of the Herbarium at the University of Montana with curator Shannon Kimball! The University of Montana Herbarium is an irreplaceable resource for the activity of the botany and plant ecology of Montana. It contains over 130,000 plant specimens and has the largest and best representation of the flora of the Northern Rocky Mountains in the world. The Herbarium is particularly well-known for its outstanding collections from the alpine and montane regions of Montana. This is the same tour Shannon gives to in-person visitors so prepare for a wonderful experience!
