UCSB Natural History Collection News
Have you ever wanted to volunteer in a natural history collection or herbarium?
Join us Saturday November 2 (9:00am to 3:00pm) to help us digitally transcribe specimens from the UCSB Natural History Collections. Tour the collections, meet collection staff, participate in research and learn about our projects that are helping make information about museum specimens and plants available online.
The UCSB Natural History Collections will be having weekly informal research seminars, with several guest speakers planned. If you are interested in natural history or collections research, come join every Wednesday from 5-6pm in CCBER's classroom! This will also be the meeting time for the Natural History Collections Club. Read more to find out the schedule of presenters.
