Herbaria and welcome to the Northern Utah Flora Project

Welcome to the northern Utah flora project!

The main hope of this project is to connect botanists and the general public to herbaria in northern Utah together and to increase awareness of how rich our plant diversity is. Some might be asking "what is an herbarium" and the quick answer is that it is a museum of dried plant specimens that serve as vouchers during exploration/scientific research. For those interested in learning more about (or even visiting) herbaria, here are links to the major herbaria in our region:

Intermountain Herbarium - Utah State University (Logan, UT): https://www.usu.edu/herbarium/
Stanley L. Welsh Herbarium - Brigham Young University (Provo, UT): https://lifesciences.byu.edu/magazine/byus-herbarium
Garrett Herbarium - University of Utah (Salt Lake City, UT): https://nhmu.utah.edu/botany
Weber State Herbarium - Weber State University (Ogden, UT): https://www.weber.edu/botany/Herbarium.html
Utah Valley University Herbarium - Utah Valley University ( Orem, UT): https://www.uvu.edu/college-of-science/biology/herbarium/index.html

If you want to visit us all at once go to intermountainbiota.org where all our data are posted!

Lastly, if you are interested in joining the state's native plant society please visit the Utah Native Plant Society's website to find out about other workshops, activities, trips, and more happening in Utah! https://www.unps.org/
