Nature on Display: Frogs! A Chorus of Colors

This exhibit is only at the museum for a few months but it was really cool. They had about a dozen different species of frogs and there were display boards that described each species. The display boards were really nice because you got to see the frogs and their environments and read about them all at once. Each species kind of had their own area so that also helped show the different types of frogs.

Nature and Ethics: Florida Fossils

The fossil exhibit was breathtaking. It's hard to imagine all of those things were once living, breathing creatures. When I was walking through the exhibit there were several small kids (presumably there on a field trip) who were all gaping at how big the jaws were at the shark display. It made me feel like I had gone back in time, something about fossils makes that world feel so distant but really it's not. I feel like we should respect the Earth and all the creatures on it.

Nature and the Human Spirit: The Butterfly Garden

I definitely stepped out of my ordinary life when I walked into the Butterfly Garden. It's so pretty, it feels magical. Seeing this little sanctuary for butterflies was so eye-opening. It was like something out of a storybook, they were just flying around and looked completely oblivious to my presence. You don't really see this much nature in your day-to-day life and it was a rally nice change. The beauty and colors of the butterflies and their sanctuary just added to the mystery and majesty that was all around me.
