Did you know that the Marion Natural History Museum started in the 1800s with a group of people who enjoyed getting together and sharing their natural history collections? Some of these collectors were whaling ship captains and prominent business people, including Marion benefactor Elizabeth Taber herself. Let’s continue that tradition during our first program of 2014. Bring in your collections to share and visit ours. As the project, we will be creating a box to house our smaller collections to take home. Program will be held on Wednesday, January 29 from 3:30 – 4:30 pm at the Marion Natural History Museum, 8 Spring Street, Marion. Cost is $4 for members and $6 for nonmembers. Please register by going to the museum’s website: www.marionmuseum.org, printing out a registration form, and submitting it along with payment.
