Traveling Treasures 2016
For more than 16 years, The Natural History Museum of Utah and Zions Bank have worked together on Traveling Treasures, a robust annual outreach partnership designed to bring the state museum of natural history, and its collections, into Utah’s diverse communities. Every year, a team of educators, exhibit designers, bank personnel, and museum volunteers together create a new traveling exhibit which explores an intriguing aspect of the natural history of the state, region or planet.
During its time on the road each year, Traveling Treasures visits up to 12 cities and hosts family festivals and packed community lectures throughout the state. This community programming allows the Natural History Museum of Utah to connect with Utah’s communities statewide. From Layton, Panguitch, and Richfield to Duchesne, Tooele and North Ogden.
Poison is prevalent in the natural world. Over millions of years, plants and animals have evolved an arsenal of deadly toxins to defend themselves from predators and to capture prey. Poisonous compounds also lurk in many minerals, including ones we’ve used in pigments, water pipes, medicines, and more. Recognizing the power of poison, people have sought magical protections from its harmful effects throughout history. Discover the surprising story of poison in this exhibit of specimens from the Natural History Museum of Utah sponsored by Zions Bank.
