Museum of Natural and Cultural History
Celebrate 143 years of Ducks doing collections-based research.

Ducks do science with museum collections. Whether examining artifacts to map ancient ecosystems or analyzing fossils to guide future conservation efforts, students count on our collections to help them uncover mysteries about evolution, ecology, and human behavior. 

 

It’s a tradition that began in 1876, when geologist Thomas Condon joined the UO as its first science professor and brought an impressive fossil collection to use in teaching his evolution courses. In the years since, the Museum of Natural and Cultural History has become Oregon’s official repository for publicly owned collections, growing to include more than 125,000 objects ranging from archaeological and ethnographic items to fossils, rocks, and biological specimens. By preserving this vital record of Earth’s environments and peoples, we’re ensuring that generations of future Ducks can visit the vaults to investigate, document, and expand on our collective knowledge.

 

Your gift ensures that Ducks can keep researching these incredible collections—gaining new insights that will help us build a more resilient future. And with 143 gifts of any amount, we can unlock two #DucksGive challenges: an $1,800 gift from Penny Moore, and $3,000 from Patricia Krier and Thomas Connolly. Help support Ducks doing science in the collections vaults! Make your gift now.
