This Week at the Museum

September 21, 2016

Are we relevant!

What is the relevance of the Georgia Museum of Natural History to the People of Georgia?

Last year our keyword was “aware.” We worked to make Georgians aware of the GMNH. We reached out with:
-- A weekly newsletter.

-- Public lectures at the Special Collections Library by Jon Pickering on moths, Richard Hall on birding, Robert Wyatt on “Sex in the Garden,” and James Porter on conservation and climate change (Thanks to Board member Alan Covich and his committee for making arrangements).

-- Co-sponsored events with the Oconee Rivers Audubon Society, Discover Life, the John Abbott exhibits in the Special Collections Library, The Nature Ramblers, and Athens Word of Mouth (including a “Poets and Nature” symposium)

-- This year’s Celebration speaker Deborah Blum has attracted wide attention, on-campus and off-campus.

Now, for this coming year I propose the keyword “relevance.”

Friends of the Museum, I want your ideas: what is the relevance of the GMNH to the people of Georgia? How do we demonstrate relevance?

Give it some thought, please. E-mail me your responses to

Dac  Crossley
