The HTTU herbarium welcomes volunteers to assist with curation of specimens, to collect plants, or help in other capacities. We are also available to help with plant identification of field collected material.

Current projects we need volunteer assistance with:

  • Databasing the collection (skills with Microsoft Excel and/or Access preferred)
  • Mounting and or repairing specimens (no experience needed)
  • Field collectors (to collect on your own property or to come along on field trips)

We will also be glad to provide tours of the herbarium if an appointment is scheduled in advance. Groups should be limited to 10 people at a time due to the size of the facility.

If you would like to volunteer or would like more information, please contact Shawn Krosnick at 931-372-6194 or
