HERBARIUM

 

"The Yale Herbarium is a repository with holdings of approximately 350,000 specimens from throughout the world ... The collection is particularly rich in ferns, bryophytes and grasses, as well as in historically important materials from early botanical collectors." - Yale Herbarium

Our team at Pom's Cabin Farm was delighted to find this repository [peabody.yale.edu]. A search into native plants found along the  banks of the Housatonic River near Falls Village has brought the following specimens to our attention. We find the documentation beautifully preserved.
