Get Closer to the Land: Signs of Wildlife on the Trail
University Libraries in partnership with Artown and the Nevada Department of Wildlife invites you to get closer to the land!
Come learn about signs of wildlife, then put your knowledge to the test as you identify tracks on the trail inside the University of Nevada, Reno's Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center. Interact with live animal specimens courtesy of the Nevada Department of Wildlife and take in our newest exhibit Closer to the Land: Environment and Ecology in Nevada. The event is free and open to the public. This is a family friendly event and all are welcome to participate.
The exhibit focuses on the contrasting environments found in Nevada and the Great Basin, and the relationship of the environment with its living inhabitants including humans, animals, and plants. The exhibit explores Nevada’s diverse landscapes and wildlife populations through written and visual materials from the University Libraries Special Collections and University Archives’ Department’s extensive holdings of environmental collections. It also features three-dimensional objects including skulls, specimens, and taxidermied mounts courtesy of the University of Nevada, Reno Museum of Natural History.
Signs of Wildlife on the Trail will take place in the Wells Fargo Auditorium and Whittemore Gallery located on the first floor of the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center. Attendees will also be encouraged to visit the Closer to the Land exhibit on display in Special Collections and University Archives located on the third floor.
