Twigs & Stems: Notable Reads from Around the Web // Jan. 2016

On behalf of our entire staff here at The Nature Museum, I want to wish you a very happy 2016. 

Thank you to everyone who donated to us in 2015! Your gift supports our gem of a museum in a myriad of ways. For instance, it enables us to produce our magical Fairy House Festival, our stimulating adult speaker series, and it propels our ability to provide quality natural science programming for youth. So thank you!

In 2016, we hope to continue our commitment to facilitating real connections to the natural world for our entire community both near and far. As a part of that objective, we'll be posting monthly roundups of some of our favorite reads, tidbits, and links from around the web. See something that you'd like to share?
