Where I Am Now

The Pember Museum in Granville, NY (population 6546 as of the 2000 census), typical of natural history collections built in the Victorian era, houses a premier assortment of specimens assembled by a private philanthropist more than a century ago. I volunteer here, assisting with cataloguing, because it exemplifies the curiosity and interest in the natural world that fired collectors more than 100 years ago.
