Event details

***Please note this program is being offered virtually via Zoom.***

If you visit a museum or nature center, it’s not uncommon to see a taxidermized animal staring back at you. Join a naturalist to explore how these animals have gone from cabinet of curiosities to trophies to carefully curated museum displays. Note: This virtual program is a broad historical overview of the field of taxidermy, not an instructional program.
