Press Flowers with Botanist Anna Balla

March 10, 2017 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm Tank

Press flowers and learn about what the Field does to keep plant specimens safe and sound. Anna Balla, of the Botany department, will answer questions about the Museum’s herbarium as she leads guests through a simple plant-pressing activity. Plus, you can bring your pressed plants home.

While The Backroom will remain open to regular bar foot traffic during our events and discussions, seating for them is first come, first served. Following Anna’s workshop, enjoy a Bitters making workshop with Weatherby’s Bitters.
