The Unnaturalist Society

We’re eternally thankful for the efforts of our donors, so much so that we induct each into the regal (and tremendously influential) Unnaturalist Society–a rogue crew of corporate sponsors, founding donors, and builders, that help keep both the Museum of Unnatural History and our student programming fresh, imaginative, and effective.

From us to you: endless thanks.

If you are interested in joining the Unnaturalist Society, please contact Joe Callahan ( for more information on levels and benefits.
