Preserving Salem College's Herbarium

When Jennifer Cruse Sanders took over Salem College's Herbarium in 2005 it had been closed since 1980. In that time it collections - some dating back to the 1820s - had suffered from neglect and tobacco beetle attack. Now, with Cruse Sanders moving to a job at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, and her student assistant, Kristian Jones graduating, there is concern about the future of the collection.
