Delve deeply into the rich and fascinating history of the National Herbarium of Victoria at Melbourne Gardens with Pina Milne, Manager of Collections. As the State’s oldest scientific institution and the home of the precious State Botanical Collection, the Herbarium boasts 1.5 million specimens and many rare plants within its walls. With treasures inside gathered on expeditions by Joseph Banks, Burke and Wills and even a couple of specimens hand collected by Charles Darwin, venturing into this trove of history and science is an expedition of your own.
This program is presented as part of Branch Out: Experiences in the Gardens for the Over 60s, in partnership with Regis Aged Care.
