Her Natural History.
During Women's History Month, we are thrilled to be participating in #HerNaturalHistory, an online campaign joining institutions from around the world to increase awareness of and information about women in the biodiversity sciences, organized by the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL). The campaign kicks off this Friday, on International Women's Day, with a social media blitz and will continue the rest of the month with stories and activities you can participate in. Check out BHL's blog about the campaign and follow our social media to share our posts and join the discussion using the hashtag #HerNaturalHistory.

Check out the Once Upon a Try project page and then explore our exhibits on the discovery of medicinal plants and the people and plants shaping modern medicine.
