"The Friends of The Chico State Herbarium, California State University, Chico, was formed to help maintain the high quality of work that has been known to be associated with the herbarium. The primary purpose of the group is to provide community support for the herbarium and to help demonstrate and publicize the value of the herbarium to the botanical community. Scientific and academic pursuits are the focus of the group. Activities include raising funds for items that are not covered under the University budget, offering low cost workshops and classes on various botanical topics, supporting the Jim Jokerst Field Botany Award to encourage student research involving field aspects of botany and ecology, and publication of a newsletter about these and other activities as well as providing information about news and articles of local botanical interest."
