Join us for a collaborative herbarium workshop on the beautiful grounds of Glen Foerd. The day will begin with building your own plant press and collecting plant specimens. Afterward, you’ll have the opportunity to practice mounting pressed plants to create your own herbarium sheets. Space is limited, so be sure to register today.


Glen Foerd, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is located on 18 acres at the confluence of the Poquessing Creek and Delaware River. It is the only remaining riverfront estate in Philadelphia open to the public. The estate was saved from demolition by a coalition of dedicated neighbors in the immediate community. They formed the non-profit Glen Foerd Conservation Corporation to manage and operate the estate, which is leased from Philadelphia Parks and Recreation. Glen Foerd stewards an eclectic riverfront estate for the enjoyment and educational benefit of the community. Drawing from the estate’s architecture, art, material culture, and history – as well as its gardens and waterways – Glen Foerd provides inclusive experiences that spark curiosity and support Philadelphia’s natural and cultural ecosystems. The estate grounds are free to the public and open every day from dawn to dusk.


The Museum for Art in Wood is a museum of contemporary art, craft, and design in the material of wood. The Museum presents the work of emerging and established artists from the United States and abroad and offers thought-provoking exhibitions, a permanent collection of over 1,100 objects and works of art, publications and documentation, events and workshops, and a library with over 26,000 artist files, books, and documents that span the history of craft. The Museum also brings artists and researchers from around the world to Philadelphia every year to attend its unique Windgate Artist Residency Program.
