The University of Lethbridge Herbarium (LEA) contains approximately 12,000 specimens of vascular plants, mostly from southern Alberta. Many of the specimens were collected in conjunction with the preparation of the Flora of Waterton Lakes National Park published by Dr. Job Kuijt in 1982. The herbarium facilities are routinely used by students of Plant Systematics and Field Botany as well as faculty and students conducting research projects involving vascular plants. Material is loaned to and received from recognized herbaria around the world. Access to the herbarium collection can be arranged by contacting Dr. John Bain (403-329-2361).
