Our Favorite Things

What do Japanese figures, butterflies, soapstone bowls and sloth bones have in common? While seemingly unrelated, these objects serve as examples of Fernbank’s natural history collections that document the history and diversity of our ever-changing planet.

This exhibit was guest-curated by staff members, representing each of Fernbank’s departments, to showcase some of their favorite objects that connect with stories of our planet and its inhabitants.
