Norton-Brown Herbarium Fund

The Norton-Brown Herbarium is the largest and most representative collection of Maryland plants. With specimens dating from the 1820s to the present day, the collection documents the changes in Maryland’s flora from our rural, agricultural past to our urban and suburban present. The herbarium plays an essential role in detecting, identifying and documenting the distribution and abundance of plant species as they change in response to land use and climate.

Through research, education, and translating research to policy and management we help to fulfill University of Maryland’s Land Grant mission.  By supporting the Norton-Brown Herbarium, you are contributing to our expertise in Maryland’s rare plants, invasive plants, and aquatic plants.  You also contribute to the conservation of the botanical diversity that is so important in maintaining water quality in rivers, lakes, and the Chesapeake Bay for generations to come.

Fighting world hunger. Building sustainable housing. Saving the Chesapeake Bay. The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources is at the heart of the University of Maryland’s original land-grant mission to serve the state and improve the quality of life in Maryland and beyond. Students and faculty are investigating important contemporary topics including food and water safety, nutrition and human health, genomics, biotechnology, animal diseases and welfare, and the environment. Your support can ensure that faculty, students and facilities have the resources needed to keep pace with emerging diseases, threats to our food supply or new environmental risks.
