150 Species for Canada 150

April 16, 11:00 AM, Royal Saskatchewan Museum

When people get a chance to see what goes on behind the scenes at a museum like the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, they are often excited to learn about the size and inherent value of the collections. To recognize the 150th year of Confederation, we are putting 150 species from the provincial natural history and fossil collections on display. Museums like the RSM collect and study specimens like these to preserve them for future generations and to better understand the life around us. This exhibit is a chance to see part of the collections up close and learn more about how we know when a new species is discovered, why their names are important, and how species get their names.
