Black Hills State University Herbarium manager, Grace Kostel, was recently selected from hundreds of applicants to participate in the Research Coordination Network (RCN), a national effort funded by the National Science Foundation to improve the biological collection infrastructure nationwide.

Because BHSU is located in a region extraordinarily rich in natural history, the herbarium will not only greatly contribute towards protecting the area's rich natural heritage, but also serve as a regional leader in the nation's effort to accelerate taxonomic research and improve the quality of education.

Approximately 85 people attended an open house at the herbarium recently. The open house highlighted the resources available at the herbarium and botanical library, as well as the new herbarium compactor system.
