Natural History Collection Grant and Journal Feature

The ASU Biology Department received a $6,918 grant from the Concho Valley Workforce Development Board to promote science education in the local community through the Angelo State Natural History Collections. The grant has funded K-12 Science Education Loan Boxes that are available for checkout to local and area educators for use in their classrooms. The boxes come with suggested lesson plans and contain models and tools that will give students hands-on learning experiences related to plants, mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles housed in the ASNHC. The ASNHC was also prominently featured in a research article published in the December 2018 issue of the Journal of Mammalogy, the flagship publication of the American Society of Mammalogists.
