University of Idaho
Moscow, Idaho
Student Chapter of the Botanical Society of America

Officers:

President: Simon Uribe-Convers
Vice-President: Hannah E. Marx
Treasurer: Diego Morales-Briones
Secretary: Sarah J. Jacobs

Mission:

The Student Chapter of the Botanical Society of America at the University of Idaho, promotes the education and dissemination of botanical knowledge to students (undergraduate and graduate) and the broader community. We are a group of people who want to bring plants closer to students and the community by sharing our knowledge.

 

Planned Activities:

Herbarium keying parties – Once a month we come together and work on those hard groups that still need to be identified.
Fieldtrips – Around Moscow, ID, we have some very impressive natural landscapes, including the Clarkia Fossil Bed with thousands of 15 million year old (Miocene) fossils!
Tours to the arboreta and herbarium – The university of Idaho has two arboreta and an herbarium with ca. 200,000 specimens.
