Starting this Fall, the Friends of the Georgia Museum of Natural History will be supporting monthly informal talks by local scientists who work with or benefit from interactions with the Georgia Museum of Natural History. Talks are planned to be outdoors next to the lovely Mary Kahrs Warnell Memorial Garden and Pond, also known as the "Turtle Pond" on South Campus. If the weather is less lovely, we will meet in the nearby River Basin Center building. The Friends will provide coffee, so bring your mug and your natural history interests!
