Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Group tours and talks return

19 February 2024

We are pleased to announce the return of our tours and talks program for visiting groups. Due to the pandemic, staffing shortages and project deadlines, we were unable to offer our normal program of tours and talks for about four years. We are so delighted with the return of the program that our curators have added several new talks on a variety of topics relating to our collections. Of course, they continue to provide tours of the current exhibition, and they even venture online for virtual presentations and off-site to your organization. As always, a great way to learn in-depth about different aspects of our collections is to schedule a tour or talk for your group. To schedule a tour or talk by our curators, please contact us.
