I’m in Missoula to film a SciShow episode and do an event with Hank tonight - but this morning I dropped by the UMZM to check things out and chat with the current curator. It was great to visit again - they’re still working on raising funds to move the collections into a new space, but the activity in the museum is good and there’s a number of people volunteering and preparing specimens.
The Wildlife Society group on campus cleaned and articulated the wolf that we skinned in our early episodes! So that was wild to see again.
Photos: articulated hare, osprey skeleton. The fourth photo is an juvenile bear with its adult teeth pushing through. I miss this place so much!
