The RBGE Herbarium holds countless treasures among the three million specimens, but some of the most exciting are those collected by Charles Darwin on the Voyage of the Beagle. This is an opportunity to hear about how a member of staff unexpectedly came across one specimen as he was working – the first Darwin specimen from the Galapagos recorded at RBGE. Talk followed by a short tour of the Herbarium.

Organised by the Friends of RBGE
