Celebrate President's Day with the Delaware Museum

The Delaware Museum of Natural History celebrates Presidents' Day this Monday, February 16, 2009 with Natural Leaders: Presidents and Nature. This family-friendly event features hands-on activities and crafts about presidents' roles in environmental conservation:

A scavenger hunt around the museum to find animals discovered on Thomas Jefferson's Lewis and Clark Expedition. A matching game about Theodore Roosevelt's "natural" empire of national forests, parks, and preserves. A special display of duck stamps - along with live ducks - highlighting this conservation effort begun by Franklin Roosevelt. A live wild turkey and lesson about why Benjamin Franklin compared the animal to the bald eagle depicted on the Great Seal of the United States. An exhibit of endangered species and a "find the polar bears" activity shedding light on the accomplishments of more recent presidents
