The natural history collection is a thriving, growing collection! A number of students currently are working with the collection, as part of independent research projects, Honors projects, or learning skills through work-study. Below, we spotlight some of the current students and their work.
- Brittani Sanford, an honors student, is working to identify the grasshoppers in our collection
- Laken Cooper is working on catalogging and digitizing our insect collection
- Cassandra Boerstler is working on a backlog of unmounted herbarium specimens that date back to the 1960s. Adding these to our digitized collection will expand our herbarium collection substantially.
- Erika Palmquist is working to catalog herbarium specimens, and understand more about the history of our collection.
