March 11, 2010: Scientific Oddities with Paxton Gate

Local retail treasure Paxton Gate is well-known around the city for featuring a diverse collection of “treasures and oddities inspired by the garden and the natural sciences”.  For this week’s NightLife, they will be showcasing such wondrous oddities as fossils, plants and taxidermy and relating them to specimens and science that we have here at the Academy.

Learn the history and significance of taxidermy with a live demonstration by San Francisco-based artist Jeanie M, explore fossils that are millions of years old, and see a truly bizarre and beautiful plant selection that will highlight the interdependence of plants and animals in their natural habitats.
