CLEVELAND — Helping to fight the boredom some may be experiencing at home during the stay at home order, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History is launching a new digital series that provides entertaining and in-depth looks at wildlife and virtual science classes.

“As difficult as the last few weeks have been for all of us, it is clear that our mission is more important than ever: To inspire, through science and education, a passion for nature, the protection of natural diversity, the fostering of health, and leadership to a sustainable future,” said President and CEO Sonia Winner, in a statement.

The series will be released by episode and on the museum’s social media channels three times each week at 12 p.m., with features including:

Museum Mondays: Virtual science classes for school-age children, taught by Museum educators in the Museum’s galleries and collection areas.

Wildlife Wednesdays: Video profiles of the native Ohio animal species that reside at the Museum and its Ralph Perkins II Wildlife Center & Woods Garden—Presented by KeyBank, as well as inside looks at the Museum’s animal care, training, and enrichment programs.

Scientist Saturdays: A rotation of recorded scientific lectures, research findings, and collection spotlights.

There will be certain episodes where museum staff will answer questions.
