Announcement: Docent for the Corpse Flower

All members of the campus community are invited to sign up to serve as volunteers for the Department of Biology when the rare Titan Arum or Amorphophallus titanum, commonly named corpse flower, blooms. Expected to occur sometime next week or next weekend, volunteers are needed to help in and around the Nobel Hall of Science greenhouse when it will be open to the public to allow people to view (and smell) the first known corpse flower to bloom in Minnesota. The greenhouse will be open to the public at no charge between 8 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. on dates to be announced. To sign up, contact greenhouse manager Emily Hoefs at For more details on the flower, visit the website
