NatureTrek & Nature’s Best Photography

NatureTrek Opening February 16

The excitement surrounding the unveiling of this new exhibition is off the charts.

NatureTrek will be a permanent exhibition that focuses on natural science. Visitors will have the unique opportunity to explore and interact with immersive habitats including a backyard, meadow, wetland, forest, and transitional forest. Each habitat is filled with detailed scenery and plant/animal specimens.

We’re also thrilled that NatureTrek includes “The Raven Interactive Sound Exhibit” developed and provided by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. The Raven Exhibit includes touch-screen monitors for visitors to learn more about bird and mammal anatomy and behavior.

NatureTrek also features the “Ann B. Van Atta Children’s Activity Center” which will give visitors the opportunity to participate in hands-on science activities.

This exhibition is so immersive that you’ll feel like you’re outdoors!

Nature’s Best Photography Returning

In 2017, we welcomed the first collection of Nature’s Best Photography. We’re thrilled to announce that it will be returning to Roberson with all new images on February 16th!

If you missed it last year, our Nature’s Best Photography exhibition is an award-winning showcase of 50 stunning large-scale photographs. The collection includes images from a wide variety of international photographers who have captured the natural beauty and wonder of our planet’s creatures and habitats.

Each photograph is accompanied by an in-depth look into how each photographer was able to capture such an amazing shot. Some of the stories are truly inspiring! This year we’ll introduce 50 brand-new images.

Plus, we’ll complement the photographic exhibition with several unique and diverse animal specimens, from our extensive collection.

The only other museum to feature Nature’s Best Photography is the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC!
