On Today’s Horizon: Mass Extinction

Student curated temporary exhibit, On Today’s Horizon: Mass Extinction, is available for public viewing from Thursday, April 19-May 20. Step into the Beneski and discover the history of the five mass extinctions that have ravaged the species living on Earth. We are currently undergoing a sixth mass extinction, this time caused by our human impact. What can we do to mitigate the effects of this mass extinction? Learn more about what you can do in this interpretive exhibition.

Spanning all three floors, the exhibition will take you through all previous mass extinctions and the theories on how they were caused. What kinds of species did they affect? What information can we take from these previous mass extinctions to learn about the sixth one? Come for a guided tour with the student curator, Antonella Dominguez ‘18, on April 26 and May 3 at 2:30 p.m. The small steps we take now to reduce the effects of our human impact can only help now with the trajectory of the six mass extinction we have caused.

Year-end recital: Professor Sawyer's Music 388 will start at 3:00 and Music 269 will start at 4:30.
