Taking care of our collection is a huge labor of love that takes a lot of time, skill, money, and space. Restoring and protecting specimens requires special equipment that will get them display ready and preserve them for years, or even decades, to come. But once damaged, it can be very difficult, if not impossible, to restore a specimen. We appreciate any and all help that we can use toward maintaining this remarkable collection so we can continue sharing it with others.

Financial donations are always welcome, and please see our wish list of other items you can donate. Even if you don’t see an item on our wish list, but think it may be useful, please ask! We’re always recycling stuff into art and displays.

We’re also always on the look out for volunteers¬†to help spread the word, pin, paint, sculpt, etc. This is a huge project if you want in, we got you!!!
