Death by Natural Causes

Tuesday, March 27, 2018 4–7 p.m.


Snakes. Spiders. Sharks. The things you fear are the least of your worries! Death by Natural Causes will introduce patrons to the range of “animal, vegetable and mineral” dangers that lurk in their everyday lives. Through a collection of specimens, text and interactives, visitors can see what can cause death, either directly or indirectly, from the natural world. Poisonous, venomous and toxic are just a few of the terms that will be clarified, and things you interact with almost daily will be used as examples—mushrooms, snakes, spiders and even common foods! Visitors will travel through five general areas of rich graphics, compelling visuals and surprising specimens.

Educators will receive one hour of CPE credit.
