This month, learn how photographers and scientists document biodiversity and use art to help people connect with nature. 

  • Visit the photography exhibit, Frogs! Through an Ecology Lens, to learn about the diversity of frogs in India.
  • Attend the lecture, India: An Amphibian Hotspot, presented by scientist and photographer S. D. Biju, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.  
  • Visit In Search of Thoreau’s Flowers, an art and science exhibition inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s plant collections from Concord, MA.
  • Create a cyanotype – a camera-less photographic print – using local plant material guided by photographer Leah Sobsey, whose work is featured in the Thoreau exhibit. 
  • Take some snaps in our photo booth with fun nature-themed props and backgrounds.
  • Purchase drinks at the cash bar (valid government ID required to consume alcoholic beverages).
  • Enter a free raffle to win museum gifts and membership.
