Discover Your World
Each year we celebrate the contributions of women in scientific fields at our annual event in February. Shortly after that event this year, we received a note from a teenage girl named Paris who had attended, and she said that we “helped make the path for [her] life clear” and inspired her to “do what I love and break the norms while I do it.”
The Museum helps future scientists like Paris discover the world around them, and through that discovery, feel inspired. They find what makes them happy and what fulfills them. The Museum’s work isn’t just about nature or science—it’s about people—about teenagers like Paris who will make incredible contributions of their own. It’s about helping people live wonderful lives, pursue their passions, and be inspired by nature and science.
Please help us continue to teach and inspire all those children and adults who love science.
Thank you in advance for supporting science, nature, and all of the 330,000 people we reach every year.
Make a donation and join us as a fundraiser, then ask your own social networks to support us. We need your support!
Your donations can do a lot. It costs roughly:
$1 to digitize a single specimen
$43 per child for a second grade class to attend our Inspire program
$81 to steward one acre of land for a year
