Sounds of Spring: Songbird Night at the Museum

Did you know there are over 4000 species in songbirds in the world? From mockingbirds to warblers, nightingales to lyrebirds, these singers are renowned (and often named) for their vocal talents. Come get a glimpse of some members of this melodically gifted group as we look into the Slater Museum's collection of songbirds! 

Kid's Activity - Construct your own bird feeder from entirely biodegradable materials and attract local songbirds to your own backyard! 

Specimen preparation - As always, our Collections Manager will be turning dead animals into museum specimens. You can ask questions and get hands-on with his dissections and preparations. 

Visiting Experts - Scientists from the University of Puget Sound will share with us how we study songbirds today! 

This is a free, family-friendly, drop-in event!

Join us March 26th, from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. at the University of Puget Sound Campus (located at 1500 N Warner St, Tacoma, WA 98416) in Thompson Hall room 295. Please find directions to Thompson Hall here
