Meet the Fellows

Introduce yourself to our new President and Director...
Sunday, November 8, 4 pm - 6 pm

Get to know your fellow Fellows and introduce yourself to our new President and Director, Dr. Lori Bettison-Varga at this casual cocktail reception.  Joining us will be some of our curators, so have questions ready for Lori and our Research and Collections staff!   This is the perfect opportunity to become acquainted with the leaders and scientists who will shape the future of NHM. 


Invertebrate Paleontology
Wednesday, December 2, 11:30 am

Alliance members will gather for a delicious catered lunch, a state of the Museum address, and a presentation with Austin Hendy, Collections Manager of Invertebrate Paleontology.

Alliance Luncheons are a benefit for the $3,500 Alliance Circle Level and above. 


Dinosaurs of Ghost Ranch
Sunday, December 6, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Meet our new Dino Institute curator Dr. Nathan Smith!  Discover dinosaurs that roamed the Triassic and fossilized at what is now Ghost Ranch, New Mexico. The origin and initial diversification of dinosaurs represents one of the most poorly known events of vertebrate evolution, and much of Nate's recent research in Ghost Ranch, New Mexico and the Central Transantarctic Mountains has helped to fill major geographic, temporal, and taxonomic gaps in our understanding of early dinosaurs and the world they inhabited. These studies have received international press coverage, and Nate's collaborative Ghost Ranch field program was featured in the 2007 3-D IMAX® movie, “Dinosaurs Alive!”
