North Carolina State University Libraries is teaming up with paleobotanist Elisabeth Wheeler in order to catalog thousands of species of wood. The collection, “Inside Wood”, will be available on the free public database, and showcase thousands of samples from different trees around the world. Wheeler has also donated her personal collection of 25,000 samples to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.
The Aurora Fossil Museum is just one of many museums in the North Carolina Grassroots Science Museums Collaborative (GSMC). Since 1990, the GSMC has helped facilitate cooperative projects between members, enabled them to develop exhibits, and expand science education around North Carolina. There are now 25 member institutions in the GSMC, all of which benefit from acting as a cohesive unit for funding opportunities and intellectual sharing.
