Federal ‘Museums for America’ Grant Awarded to WIS

WIS has been awarded a highly competitive ‘Museums for America’ grant through the federal Institute of Museum & Library Services. The two-year $365,000 project “Completing Digital Catalogs of Bryophytes, Fungi, and Lichens from the Collections of the Wisconsin State Herbarium” will allow us to achieve the ambitious goal of digitizing 100% of our cryptogamic specimens.
