Come to Identification Day as our Museum experts attempt to identify artifacts, rocks, feathers, insects, shells, and any other objects you may have (but not antiques). You never know when something that seems “normal” could actually be significant. All specimens are welcome, but living creatures must be safely secured in breathable containers and promptly returned to their native environment. Bring as much information on your specimen as possible, especially the date and location of the discovery. ID Day is also your chance to get up-close and personal with some rarely seen objects and specimens from the collections.
