The Anatomy of a Specimen Sheet

The Botany Department at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History (CMNH) boasts a collection of over 548,000 plant specimens, with thousands more awaiting documentation. During my time with the department in the Spring 2022 semester, I received hands-on training in the collection process while assisting with a digitization project of plants from the Mid-Atlantic region.

Gabby Lynch, STEM Education Curriculum Assistant -Spring 2022 

A first internship can be daunting – a new environment with new people and different expectations. The Carnegie Science Center was my first internship within the museum field, and though there were elements that were new to me, this was a great opportunity to get my foot in the door.
