Collecting Evidence: Specimens and Artifacts That Demonstrate Climate Change
Monday, April 19, 2021
3:00 PM-4:00 PM
Check out rarely displayed artifacts from three institutions that all show, in different ways, how the world has changed, how we know that it has and how we can all be better citizens.
Co-presented with the Penn Museum and the Mütter Museum
Museums in Philadelphia comprise literally millions of specimens, artifacts and documents in their diverse and important collections. How do scientists and researchers use these collections to demonstrate a changing world? From skulls to diaries to snails, every museum object helps tell the story.
While this program welcomes guests of all ages, we recommend adult guidance for children due to the sensitive nature of some of the specimens we may explore. For more information, please contact Mary Bailey, Youth and Family Programs Developer, firstname.lastname@example.org.
