Beaty Biodiversity Museum
We discovered a great gem today - the Beaty Biodiversity Museum on the campus of UBC. Its impressive and well organized biological collections of natural history contain over 2 million specimens.
Serena continues to amaze me with all the information she stores in her little head. She was able to identify more specimens (esp birds) than I could in the museum.
"That's a weaver bird's nest, mom."
"What?!? How do you know? Are you sure? What on earth is a weaver bird?"
Check label. She was right.
"See, mom?", followed by a sigh as she walked away.
