Happy Blog-iversary!

This blog started two years ago today with a post about a visit with our summer camp to the Museum’s mock dig site. I was so excited to see our young archaeologists participating in a mock excavation, I just had to share the story with you. A lot has changed at the Museum since that post. And while we haven’t been able to update as often as we’d planned, I do hope you feel like this blog has given you a peek into the behind-the-scenes life of Fernbank Museum.

Recently, our summer campers returned to the dig site—this time for a mock paleontology dig. Of COURSE, Giggy, our Tweeting, Facebooking and Four Square-ing stuffed dinosaur mascot, had to check it out. Here are a few photos.

Bug spray. Essential for summers in Georgia.

Digging for dinos is dirty work!


After the dig. This dinosaur is missing a rib or two, a leg bone, and most of the tail, but the campers still loved putting it together! And we got to talk about the fact that paleontologists usually don’t find the whole skeleton.

If there are topics you’d like to see us write about, please let us know. We love to hear from you. Send feedback to marketing@fernankmuseum.org. Thanks for reading!

At Fernbank Museum, there’s much more than dinosaurs and giant-screen films. Even with our website, e-newsletters, Facebook pages and Twitter updates, there’s still a lot we’d like to share with you. This blog is an opportunity for the people that keep Fernbank running and constantly expanding, to share stories from their point of view. We hope you’ll enjoy these first-hand, behind-the-scenes glimpses of what goes into keeping a world-class natural history museum running. As always, we’d love to hear your feedback on these stories, to hear your personal experiences and hear any suggestions for topics. Happy reading!
