Conversazione 2016 celebrated the retirement of Professor Gren Lucas as Treasurer after 20 years of service. To mark the occasion, the Linnean Society commissioned the conservation of the Herbarium Cabinet of Carl Linnaeus.
Affectionately known as “Herbie”, it is one of the three original cabinets designed by Linnaeus himself and built to house his Herbarium. Fully conserved, it is now on display at the Linnean Society’s mezzanine along with some interpretation materials.
The Linnean Society is very grateful to all the donors who have made it possible, helping us raise more than £4,400. Therefore, we invite you to join us on this official unveiling.
