Science Museum of Minnesota

Log Number: MA-249382-OMS-21

The Science Museum of Minnesota will undertake a two-year project that will include the digitization of the Wannagan Creek fossil collection and all specimen data. The collection represents a critical recovery phase for life shortly after the mass extinction that ended the age of the dinosaurs, including plants, vertebrates, and invertebrates. The museum will make a photo of each specimen publicly available and publish digital versions of field notes, accession records, and other publications. The project will provide for broader and easier public engagement both online and in-person. Digitization of this collection will ensure the long-term survival of its content and allow the public to learn from and appreciate its value.
