This Week at the Museum

October 11, 2015

“In fourteen hundred and ninety-two,
Columbus sailed the ocean blue….”

And thus began the transoceanic voyage of foreign flora and fauna introduced into the Americas, unwanted migrations that continue today. The Georgia Museum of Natural History stores representatives of our natural biota, a resource against which such invasions are documented. Thanks to members of the Friends for supporting those efforts.
After Hours at the Museum
Mark your calendars! After Hours at the Museum, November 3rd, 5:30 – 7:00 pm. Explore the secrets of Zooarchaeology, one-on-one with curator Dr. Elizabeth Reitz. For members only. More information to come.
Annual Celebration
Final preparations for our annual Celebration are in hand. The deadline for registration is close upon us. Don’t miss out! An informal mixer, a silent auction, our usual fantastic dinner and a presentation,  “Look Who’s Talking  Now: Whale Communication and Animal Sentience,” by Dr. James  Porter. If you haven’t yet registered, better Contact Paige  Cummings (PaigeMercerCummings@gmail.com) ASAP.
 
Field Trips
Compliments to those brave souls who joined naturalist Dr. Dale Hoyt for a Nature Ramble on a rainy Saturday. Nature Rambles will resume in the springtime, when nature awakens.

More field trips are in the planning stage, overnight ventures with the option of one-day participation. Contact Dr. Hoyt (dhoyt5@charter.net) or Dr. Robert Wyatt (rewyatt@uga.edu) and offer your suggestions.
Field trips, Celebration dinners, After Hours at the Museum – These are some of the benefits available to you as members of Friends of the Museum. Let’s work together to make Georgians aware of the Museum and its significance. I welcome your suggestions; contact me at: soilmite@earthlink.net.
