Natural history collections often begin with a single object that catches your eye. It might be an interesting rock, a fossil, or an iridescent shell that you bring home and keep in your room. Then you begin to notice things: that some of the pebbles you pick up are striped with color and some sparkle in the sun, that you can find a single type of seashell in an amazing range of sizes, that there are many kinds of animal tracks left overnight in the snow. Sound familiar? Then you're a natural history collector.
In this book, Michael Sanchez, an educator with the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, will take you to the next stage in your discovery process - knowing what to do with your collections after you bring them home. With expert advice from the museum's curators, you'll learn how to clean, store, and keep records of your collection, have fun making displays, and turn your room into a cabinet of curiosities.
