Evolution of Texas Science and Natural History Museum
Managing Director Carolyn Connerat will discuss the recent restoration and revitalization of Texas Science and Natural History Museum. This 85-year-old museum on the UT Austin campus informs visitors about life in the natural world, from the formation of planets, through the age of dinosaurs, to current fauna and flora and the impact of environmental pressures on ecosystems.
About Our Speaker:
