The Denver Art Museum was abuzz with excitement on March 25th as Christoph Heinrich, the museum’s Frederick and Jan Mayer director, made the announcement of the museum’s exciting new program, Free for Kids.
Everybody loves mythic creatures. People spend time imagining the dragons and unicorns that they have heard stories of, watched movies about, and read about. One thing few people know is the origin of these mythic creatures. At the Denver Museum of Nature and science, the new exhibit about mythical creatures tells all about many mythic creatures.
One day my family and I were hiking near a lake and spotted a large eagle-looking bird. It had a white head except for a brown mask over the eyes and a chocolaty body. I thought it was some sort of hawk. By flipping through the sections of Ted Floyd’s bird guide, I found that the bird was an osprey or a fish eagle, and it is on the list of endangered species. This little discovery made my day!
