About

Support your local herbarium!  We are the Rocky Mountain Herbarium (rockymountainherbarium.org).

Help to inspire and prepare the next generation of Botanists and continue the stewardship of our natural resources by giving to the Rocky Mountain Herbarium Excellence Fund. Your gift will directly support hands-on student learning in both the herbarium and in the field.

And, thanks to a generous gift from Hollis Marriott in memory of Joyce Hall, who loved herbaria, 50 donors will unlock an additional $2,500 that will directly support student research in the Rocky Mountain Herbarium. 

As the largest herbarium in the Rocky Mountain Region, we are a focal point for collections-based botanical research, education, and outreach at UW and the region. Our 1.4 million specimens represent an irreplaceable archive of the plant and fungal diversity in Wyoming and the Rocky Mountains through space and time. The Rocky Mountain Herbarium facilitates the University of Wyoming’s land-grant mission by providing an innovative and accessible botanical resource and cultivating a group of inspired and engaged citizens, students, and scientists.

Thank you for your support!
