Behind the Scenes: the Academy of Natural Sciences
Ruth Pfeffer
Birding Expert and Trip Leader

Join us for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Academy of Natural Sciences’ amazing collection. The Academy, the oldest natural science institution in the Western Hemisphere, was founded in 1812 when Philadelphia was the cultural, commercial, and scientific center of our new nation. The Academy’s collection now contains more than 17,000,000 specimens. While the Academy has exhibits open to the public, it has large collections that are used primarily by researchers. This is what our trip will focus on. We will see bird and insect specimens collected by pre-eminent ornithologists and entomologists. We will
also have the opportunity to see some of the priceless books in the Academy’s library.
We will leave from the Arboretum and travel by van. Park in the meadow to the left of the entrance kiosk. Space is limited. Lunch will be at the Academy’s Bistro and is not included in the cost of the trip.
