Just found out that my our National Science Foundation proposal (Co-PI Jeff Stephenson) was funded to the tune of $498,417 (year one $161,647).  The funds support the 3-year long project "Uncrowding, rehousing, and electronic migration of the mammal collection at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science" and will allow them to purchase new cabinets to rehouse the mammal collection (in time for the new Education and Collections Facility), hire a full-time curatorial assistant, migrate mammal specimen records to a web-accessible database (ARCTOS), and support various outreach activities that will highlight the collection.



Truly excellent news!
