Otis Douglas Hyde Herbarium

Tours

The Hyde Herbarium may be toured by garden groups or any other group interested to see the herbarium, learn about the importance of the herbarium and how we work. Due to the size of the herbarium, groups that are 20 people or less work best in the space available. To find our more about a herbarium tour, contact the Collections Manager.
