Prepared bird wings


The CMSC Museum recently acquired a central research and storage facility for all of the various natural history collections held by the CMSC. Work is currently underway to organize the various collections for ease of use.

The CMSC houses several excellent collections directly related to the natural history of the northern great plains. Collection areas include avian and mammalian osteological specimens, insects, Several thousand bird egg specimens, an extensive herbarium collection, and fluid preserved biological specimens. The CMSC has also started to preserve and hold specimens of stretched bird wings.

The collections held by the CMSC Museum are available by appointment to visiting researchers and other interested individuals or groups. Please email Guy Hanley or call (701) 858-3076 for arrangements
