1,Survivors Special Exhibit Guided Tour (11am) @ Musuem of the Earth

 

-The Museum of the Earth is open from 10 am to 5 pm every day during the summer, and we have special programs running weekdays and Saturdays. On Fridays at 11 am join one of our Museum educators for a guided tour of our newest special exhibit, “Survivors: Up Close with Living Fossils.”Our Living Fossils exhibit presents the evolutionary history of some of our planet’s most unique species, both abroad and local, whose bodies have stood the test of the time and remained mostly unchanged throughout eons. Why and how have these plants, animals, and microbes — from horseshoe crabs and spotted gar to stromatolites and dawn redwoods — changed so little over millions of years? In this engaging, interactive exhibit, you’ll discover the captivating stories behind the evolution, conservation, and discovery of the creatures we call “living fossils.” Get up close and personal with horseshoe crabs and sea stars in our special touch tank and view rare fossil and modern specimens from PRI’s world-class collection alongside live Animal Ambassadors from the Cayuga Nature Center. The exhibit will run through September 2, 2019.

3, First Friday art night at the museum (5pm to 8pm) @ Museum of the Earth

 

-Visit the Museum of the Earth’s Gift Shop on First Friday Art Night, August 2, 2019, to see the new exhibit of works by Marjorie Hoffman. The Museum will be open for extended evening hours.

Marjorie Hoffman is a born and bred New Yorker transplanted to Ithaca in 1991. She attended the High School of Music and Art and received a BFA at Cooper Union where she majored in photography and also discovered her love of woodworking. She earned Master degrees in education from the City University of New York and from Bank Street College. She has been making art all of her life and teaching for over thirty years. She taught art to upper elementary and middle school students at the Elizabeth Ann Clune Montessori School of Ithaca for seventeen years.

Working with her hands, particularly three dimensionally is Marjorie’s passion. She loves being a mosaic designer. Inspiration comes from the natural world and its miraculous inventions of shape and color. Using natural materials such as wood, clay, glass and stone make the creative process exciting. Marjorie explores the potential of collaged, three dimensional materials that often reach out beyond the two dimensional surface. These works are designed to be hung on a wall.

Light refreshments will be served. Special evening $5 admission rates apply to Museum exhibits. Admission to the show in the Museum’s Gift Shop is free, the artwork will be on display through the end of September

8, James Potorti Interpretive Gorge walks (10am) @ Watkins Glen State Park

 

-Join us for our annual James Potorti Museum of the Earth/State Parks Gorge Walks on Fridays in August. PRI has been offering this series of free Friday-morning interpretive walks in partnership with the Finger Lakes State Parks for more than 16 years.

The Finger Lakes region has an outstanding geological record exposed in the local gorges. These guided walks will introduce major concepts about geology and geologic time, allowing one to interpret the geological history of the region while enjoying the beauty of our local area.

The walks were officially named in 2004 in memory of Ithaca native James E. Potorti, who died in the September 11, 2001 attacks. The renaming of the walks was a result of an endowment gift to the Museum from his widow, Nikki Stern, Executive Director of Families of September 11. Potorti, 52, was a vice president at Marsh & McLennan, a financial services company, and worked on the 94th floor of 1 World Trade Center. His first career, however, was as a geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey. He grew up in Ithaca and attended SUNY Oswego.

Summer 2019 Schedule:
Note: All walks are 10 am – 11:30 am.

August 2 – Watkins Glen State Park
August 9 – Buttermilk Falls State Park
