Earlier this year, we had the chance to go out in the field with Dr. Allison to see some of her team’s conservation work up close. Check out the video above to learn more about the wood frog, the blue spotted salamander, and the Nature Museum’s role in their conservation!
Let’s take a trip back in time! Let’s go back to Illinois at the turn of the 20th century with naturalist Herman S. Pepoon as our guide. Click here to learn about his studies, explore some of his scientific drawings, and even see senior director of collections, Dawn, highlight some of his work.
Did you notice the incredible drawings Pepoon made on his trips around the state? You can make scientific drawings, too! Click here for a quick refresher on scientific drawings, then click here to download our Drawing from Collections handout!
