Our public programs, supported by The Friends of the Jepson Herbarium, include workshops that are designed to accommodate both beginners and specialists. The workshops provide participants access to uniquely tailored content that is delivered by recognized experts. Workshops occur in a variety of formats including classroom lectures, lab activities, and extended field excursions.

In 2015, we are partnering with the UC Natural Reserve System to broaden the scope of the Workshop Program, to increase visibility of new and existing Reserves, and to enhance the complementary missions of the Jepson Herbarium and the UCNRS.

You can also read occasional updates and notes about the workshop program on our blog.
