Vanya Rohwer and Casey Dillman, Curators
The best natural history collections are vibrant, dynamic places that reveal new insights into the workings of the natural world. Join Vanya Rohwer and Casey Dillman, curators of the Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates (CUMV), to learn how natural history collections are used to teach, conserve, and inspire new ideas. The lecture takes place in the auditorium as usual, but Vanya and Casey will escort the audience into the museum collections for a special behind-the-scenes peek at the specimens and spaces of the CUMV.
