It’s All About Connection.
The Museum of Natural and Cultural History is a place for making connections—to each other, to our past, and to our future. It’s a place for digging into science, celebrating culture, and joining together to create a just and sustainable world.
Connections are also the organizing theme of this 2021 edition of Fieldnotes, our annual online newsletter. The stories here celebrate some of the many connections that make the museum what it is, and more broadly, they honor the central importance of connectedness within and across our diverse Oregon communities.
We hope you enjoy this issue’s stories, and we hope they inspire you to stay connected with us.
