Inside - out of the rain at the Museum of Natural History

The weather has done us in.  No sketching outside tomorrow.  The temperature should be reasonable but it’s looking like we’ll get rain.  Back inside, … but no worries, we'll have an interesting day.

Meet at the Museum of Natural History.  We’re going to focus on the third floor (less dinosaurs = less crowds). We’ll meet at an obscure section - New York City Birds which showcases the rich diversity of birds in the greater New York area. The region attracts more than 400 species of birds because of its varied habitats—which include ponds and lakes, marshes and seashore, open meadows and wooded sections—and due to its location along major bird migratory routes.

Our focus for the day will be limited to all the exhibits on the third floor.


The Basics:  Meet at the Museum of Natural History, on the third floor at the New York City Birds exhibit at 11 AM, on Saturday, March 25th.  

Lunch:  12:30 - In the basement cafeteria.  Bring your own or dine on museum food. (Check out the Dino-nuggets  fried food shaped for six year olds).

Afternoon:  1:30 Back to sketching.

Show and Tell:  3:00 - Back to the basement cafeteria where we will share drawings, good stories and a snack or refreshments if you're so inclined.

-   Bring a stool if you own one.  It makes everything so much easier.
-   Admission is pay what you wish. Be generous as you can, the museum is a NYC treasure.
-   The coat check is located on the ground floor of the planetarium and costs $2.
