"Eight Days a Week" of Fun
A flurry of activity! In late April and early May of 2018, I had eight busy days of activities! I originally created this as one single blog post listing all nine events, but later decided to publish nine posts to make it easier to find for my website visitors to read.
I still think of it as one post that I hope will not only give you insight into my eight-day week, but more importantly, encourage you to support these organizations with your presence at future events.
5) Thursday, May 3, 2018 - Cleveland Museum of Natural History Members Behind-The-Scenes Night
My CMNH friends, adult programs coordinator Ashley Hall (@LadyNaturalist), and preparator and lab manager Lee Hall (@PaleeoGuy), had often recommended that I attend a Cleveland Museum of Natural History (@goCMNH) Members Behind-The-Scenes Night. They told me that attendees get to explore the normally off-limits lower levels of the Museum.
It was great to see the work areas of Lee Hall and other Museum staff members. Since I had just heard Dr. Nicole Gunter (@LepanusLady) speak about the invertebrate zoology department (@CMNHentomology) the night before at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History Reel Science film and lecture (see my blog post about the event), it was great to see her work firsthand.
