In 1970, the year of the first Earth Day, a small group of Stetson students joined an international movement to raise awareness about human responsibility to our planet. Forty-six years later, the campus continues this work with a week of events to inspire, to educate, and to challenge. Click here for a schedule of events.

 Sandhill Symphony: A Natural History of High Pine

Along with its permanent collection of minerals and earth science displays, including one about Smithsonian benefactor, James Smithson (a mineralogist in his own right), the museum celebrates the opening of a new photographic exhibit.

More than 300 images, taken by Stetson University Professor Peter May (Biology), will introduce visitors to the flora and fauna of this vanishing ecosystem.

Visit our new online gallery which features a sample of photos from the exhibit.
