Lizards and Snakes and Frogs, Oh My! If you're a herpetology fan, then you’ll love this behind-the-scenes tour of KU’s Natural History Museum. This rare opportunity is open to only 15 lucky people, so act fast!
Here's the low down on this field trip:
We will meet at the KU Natural History Museum (Dyche Hall) at 1:30 pm on Oct 11 (Tuesday). Introductions will be made, and we will then walk to the Herpetology Division (it is the 4th largest Herpetology collection in the US) for a behind-the-scenes tour by Associate Professor and Associate Curator Richard Glor. This is a secured area with no public access. No late arrivals will be admitted, and the group must stay together for the entire duration of the tour which is about 1 hour. Phones must be silenced, and no calls are permitted but photographs are permitted. Food and drink are not permitted. This will involve a tour of the wet lab and the collection. Afterwards, we will return to the lobby, and anyone who wishes to stay for a self guided tour of the museum is welcome to do so. Public parking is available at the Kansas Union (1301 Jayhawk Blvd.)
Thanks to Jack Altman for organizing this outing!
