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.
