The Otis Douglas Hyde Herbarium is available for school field trips, garden club tours and hands-on workshops where participants create their own herbarium specimen or pressed flower note cards.

When you have company visiting Seattle, drop by the herbarium for a tour and learn about the native flora through herbarium specimens.  Come hear the many stories of herbarium specimens and plants, and perhaps even join us and make your own herbarium specimen of your favorite plant.
