Identifying plants in the field Jepson workshop class at a vernal pool Jepson workshop class in the White Mountains   The Friends of the Jepson Herbarium is an organization that provides support for the valuable research and programs of the Jepson Herbarium. Contributions from the Friends are an important part of the Herbaria's operating budget and continue to ensure ongoing research and publications on California's rare and endangered flora.

  • All Friends receive our newsletter The Jepson Globe which includes updates on Herbarium research and activities, profiles of botanists, and notices from other botanical organizations. Back issues of The Jepson Globe are available online.

  • Our Friends receive discounts on and early registration for our public programs

  • Invitation to Friends only events, such as our Evening with Peter Raven event in Fall 2014 (full audio from Dr. Raven's talk, including introduction by Brent Mishler, available here).

  • We hope our Friends gain satisfaction from knowing they provide an invaluable resource to the Herbarium as we continue to study, understand, and conserve California's rich flora.
