Citizen Science Photo Contest • October - Fall Flowers, Fungi & Lichen
Join our citizen science project and make a difference for science! By recording your nature observations you help scientists track changes in migration and habitat for animals and plants. Each month we will focus on one type of animal or plant.

For October our subject is fall flowers, fungi, and lichens. Simply take a photo of the fall flowers, fungi, or lichens you see around you. Email your photo to us at Contest runs from October 1-31. Include the name of the fall flowers, fungi, or lichens; where, and when you took your photo, along with your name so we can credit your photos. We will upload your contributions to the national database at iNaturalist, and enter your photo in our monthly contest! Winners will be notified by email at the end of each month and their photos will be featured on the Museum’s Facebook page. Winning photos may be displayed in a fall exhibition.

Time Travel Tuesdays
Join us on Tuesdays via Historic Brattonsville's Facebook page and Culture & Heritage Museums' YouTube channel to learn about what some of our interpreters are working on.

For the people in 19th century, holidays could have multiple meanings. Not only did people’s rituals around holidays change over time, but one’s social class could change that celebration, too. The planter class celebrated the highs of the dawning New Year, while enslaved people dreaded the terrible lows of “Heartbreak Day,” when families were often separated. Join us as we look at the complexities of New Year’s Day in the 19th century.
