SPEAKERS BUREAU 

Looking for a speaker for your next meeting or special event? The Delaware Museum of Natural History’s Speakers Bureau is a natural choice. Museum experts are prepared to address audiences large and small on a wide variety of topics, from declining bird populations in Delaware to an overview of the Museum’s service to the community.

The Delaware Museum of Natural History (DMNH) opened in 1972 to excite and inform people about the natural world through exploration and discovery. The Museum houses world-renowned collections of mollusks and birds, including the second-largest collection of bird eggs in North America. Following a major renovation in 2005, the Museum experienced increased visitation and membership as well as expanded educational offerings and popular special exhibits.

With environmental awareness taking center stage on a national level, local audiences are increasingly interested in understanding area ecology and resources. We will be happy to work with your organization on finding a suitable presentation subject.

Sample topics include:
· The Delaware Museum of Natural History: An Overview
· Delaware shorebirds and horseshoe crabs
· Integrating nature in education from a young age
· Preview of upcoming special exhibits
· Exploring sea life in the Atlantic
· Non-profit and museum management
· Were there dinosaurs in Delaware?

The presentations are free and may incorporate audio-visual components and examples from the Museum’s collections. For more information or to schedule a speaker, please contact Communications Manager Daniel McCunney at 302-658-9111, ext. 313, or dmccunney@delmnh.org.
