The 3rd floor of the museum, where almost every department had a ton of stuff in storage, is going to be redone and turned into offices. This means all the stuff had to move, prompting departments to do big clean ups and sorting and such.
Many items that hadn’t been used in a long time were up for grabs, and I, who love to scavenge, was able to fill a couple of cartloads of things for the animal department! (Others in the animal department are not quite as excited, given my finds usually tend to clutter up the halls).
My most excellent find were these bins (which held bird nests, beakers, and a lot of other stuff our Science Education Resource Center used to use a long time ago)
I also scavenged the following… which I’ll find some way to use in our animal enrichment program!
