    Name: Much Ado About Stuffing: the Art of Taxidermy
    Date: February 21, 2018
    Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CST
    Event Description:
    Think all there is to taxidermy is stuffing an animal? Think again. Since the days of William Hornaday and Carl Akeley, taxidermy has been a scientific art: It requires practitioners not only to take accurate measurements and photos and make traces of the animals they'd like to mount, but to study the anatomy of those animals—all for the purpose of creating a specimen that is true to life. Terry Winter will take us from beginning to end of this fascinating subject and is even bringing some of his trophies.
