CABNR's herbarium receives generous support

The late Mary A. Winter of Carlin, Nevada was a wildflower scholar, botanist, adjunct college professor, gold miner and author. Her work includes Wildflowers of the Foothill Regions of Northeastern Nevada and Angelei, A Flower Hunter's Story. She spent much of her time hiking with her dogs in northeast Nevada and photographing the native wildflowers of the region. Mary named the University in her estate plan, leaving a generous gift that will benefit the Herbarium at the University of Nevada, Reno. Part of the gift will be put to immediate use, and the rest of the gift will become an endowment, providing support to the RENO Herbarium in perpetuity.
