Alfred (Fred) J. Venne, Museum Educator
The Beneski Museum of Natural History's amazing collections are what people see when they walk in the door. In most cases visitors will be greeted by Student Educators. These are Amherst College undergraduates participating in workstudy or internships. Behind the scenes are Amherst College campus facilities staff, custodians, a cadre of museum security staff members that are shared with the Mead Art Museum, and amazing collections folks. As this page develops you will learn more about the people that help bring the museum to life.
