A Botanical Blueprint / Sustainable Roots & Environmentalism at West Chester

Join Us @ Special Collections (RM615), Thursday, March 28th

This exhibition will be up until fall of 2024.


This exhibition explores the evolution of environmentalism and sustainability at West Chester. Against the backdrop of global movements, it examines the local study of natural history that emerged in the eighteenth century, showcases historical artifacts from the William Darlington Herbarium and other collections, and traces the rise of WCU’s current focus on sustainability.

Topics include plant identification, herbarium collecting, scientific inquiry/connections, botanists, botanical illustration, climate change, environmentalism, and sustainable practices at WCU.
