April 2020

Dear Friends,

I hope you and your families are in good health and good spirits during this extraordinary time. All of us here at the Delaware Museum of Natural History greatly appreciate your continued support.

As an institution dedicated to providing science and nature education for the community through exhibits, events, programs, and scientific research, we are dismayed to close our doors to the public, but we can’t wait to reopen once we get the “all clear” sign!

In the meantime, we’ve ramped up our online offerings in a big way. Check out delmnh.org and the Museum’s Facebook page for science activities, nature crafts, story times, behind the scenes tours, live animal presentations, and virtual exhibits. The response from the public to these online offerings has been fantastic! Our staff is working diligently, albeit remotely, and they are committed to our purpose to help develop a caring society that respects and values our planet.

Right now, we really need your help. Your membership and donations support all we do, especially when onsite attendance, events, and programs are not possible.

Every gift makes a difference. Please consider donating today.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. I hope to see you at the Museum soon.

Executive Director
