Look Closer!... We have two new additions to the museum.

Meet Deinonychus. This is a member of the raptor group. Our specimen is life sized, and related to the Velociraptors! It's name means "terrible claw" and you can see why! Donated by Gail and Rich Paselk. THANK YOU!

Meet Martin the marlin! This Striped Marlin was donated by Cindy Engle and her husband Steve, who caught it 30 years ago off the coast of Cabo San Lucus, in Baja Mexico. THANK YOU!

 

Our honeybee exhibit is temporarily closed. We will be getting a new queen in Spring 2019!
