Thanks to the combined efforts of faculty, students, volunteers and staff, we had a very successful Meet the Mammals day. We received 1,092 visitors, and over 260 children were certified as “Junior Mammalogists” by learning about the adaptations and diversity of extinct and living mammals. Below are some candid photos of this wonderful event.
There’s never a dull moment at the Burke. Today we moved the skulls of a sperm whale and gray whale from the mammalogy collection into the lobby to prepare for our Meet the Mammals event on Saturday, 11/16: http://bit.ly/burkemam. You can see the skulls in our lobby during the month of November.
