Lecture

Dead Birds Saving Live Birds: Museum Collections and Bird Conservation.

When: Fri., Nov. 11, 7:30-9 p.m. 2016

Join the Redwood Region Audubon Society for this presentation. Did you know that the vast majority of specimens in most natural history museum collections are not on display? They are research specimens, and the museums act as libraries of animal parts. Tamar Danufsky, curator of Humboldt State University’s Wildlife Museum, will talk about these little-known repositories, some hundreds of years old. She'll explain how these historic and recent bird specimens are for understanding and preserving bird populations. Bring a mug for coffee and come fragrance free.

Price: Free
