Volunteer to digitise herbarium specimens

2 Oct 2019 11:42 AM | enewsletter Editor (Administrator)

The following call for volunteers is passed on from the Royal Botanic Gardens.

The National Herbarium of New South Wales is imaging its 1.4 million specimens ahead of its move to the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan in April 2021. This is the first project of this scale to happen in the Southern Hemisphere.       

We need your help to prepare them for the digitising process!

By volunteering you will have the opportunity to see our incredible collection up close and meet expert plant scientists. There are two sessions per day (morning and afternoon), with each session running for approximately 3 hours.

If you would like to help and gain valuable experience, please contact Melissa Wong on with your availability and contact details.
