Identification Day at AMNH

Image placeholder title

What the heck is it? Head to the American Museum of Natural History and find out. Identification Day is an afternoon at the Museum where visitors can bring items in to be identified. This year, the popular day celebrates biodiversity. In addition to id'ing shells, rocks, insects, feathers, bones, atc. brought by kids, the day will also feature presentations from Museum scientists highlighting biodiversity--yep that means cool bugs and spiders.

Entomologist Louis Sorkin will discuss and display many of the insects and arachnids housed at the Museum, ornithologist Paul Sweet will speak about why continuing to collect specimens is crucial to our understanding of avian biodiversity, and ichthyologist Radford Arrindell will discuss documenting fish biodiversity.
