NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE To protect against exposure to coronavirus, the Museum has temporarily closed to the public and suspended all public programming until further notice.
When the Gunnison sage grouse was described as a new species in 2000, it was the first new species of bird from the United States described in 100 years. The Museum’s ornithology collection houses the holotype and paratype for this species.
