And there are lots of other powerful actions you can take. Read this article to find out more. Also, check out what our friends at Happy Hollow Zoo & Park are doing to celebrate this special day. Get inspired! View some amazing artwork that children from around the country created for StopExtinction.org’s endangered species art contest.
Help us redesign our website at our User Experience day, Saturday, May 19 from 2:00-3:30pm at the Museum.

Want to support the Museum and drink good beer? Come to Thank You Thursday next week at Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. On Thursday, May 24, between noon and 10pm, the brewery will donate one dollar to the Museum for each beer you purchase.
