Curator to Discuss New Hall of Geological Wonders
Senior Curator of Geological Sciences Kathleen Springer will present a gallery talk, “Digging in the Dirt: Breaking Ground for the Hall of Geological Wonders,” on Sunday, September 24 at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands. The talk is free with museum general admission.
Ground breaking for this museum gallery expansion is imminent. In her talk, Springer will provide updates on this monumental event that will mark the beginning of the transformation of the museum, and will share the architectural and exhibit plans for the new hall.
"The Hall of Geological Wonders will be like nothing ever encountered by visitors to a Southern California museum,” said Springer. “From fossils, rocks, and minerals to the San Andreas Fault and concepts like Deep Time, it will be immersive, interactive, engaging, informative, and downright fun!"
