The EcoTarium is in development of a new temporary exhibit drawing from our natural history collections. Today's researchers use natural history collections in a variety of ways including genome studies, biology-inspired design, advancements in human health and studying the effects of climate change. Each object in our Community Curators exhibit will tell a story about climate change. 
 
A total of five objects will be on exhibit: three chosen by guest curators and two by public vote. 
 
Community CuratorsLocal is the New Global is slated to open in January 11, 2020.
