Natural History Museums are more than just skeletons of dinosaurs and drawers full of insects and birds; they are valuable libraries of information that can tell us about the past, present and future of the world around us. Together, the six natural history museum collections at UC Berkeley represent over 12 million voucher specimens in anthropology, botany, entomology, herpetology, mammalogy, ornithology, and paleontology. Join us for a special East Bay Science Cafe for stories and conversation from people who care for the treasures of the past and work to bring our collections into the future.
Join us for a panel speakers from the Essig Museum of Entomology, the UC Berkeley Museum of Paleontologym discussing the past, present and future of our collections. This will be a special East Bay Science Cafe presented as part of the Bay Area Science Festival.
