The UCLA Dickey Bird and Mammal Collection houses more than 70,000 skins and skeletons of birds and mammals from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Central America, and Pacific Islands. Each specimen represents a snapshot of an ecosystem in a particular place and time, recording significant environmental changes. Join the Fowler in welcoming Blaire Van Valkenburgh, professor and curator, who will explain the Dickey Collection’s history and provide a virtual tour of some of its highlights currently on view at the Fowler in “The Map and the Territory: 100 Years of Collecting at UCLA.”
