A Message From the Director

Floridians will remember 2004 as the Year of the Hurricane when four powerful
storms traversed the state. On Aug. i3 one of these storms, Hurricane Charley, passed
directly over our Randell Research Center on Pine Island, seriously damaging some of
the buildings and devastating the landscape at this important Calusa archaeological
site. Less than a month later Hurricane Frances dumped inches of rain through
the damaged roofing, further exacerbating the situation. After one year we are still
recovering from the 2004 hurricanes. It has been a challenging year for the Randell
Center, but the staff and dedicated volunteers have responded with courage and
determination. With assistance from FEMA and loyal supporters, the future is looking
brighter at Pineland. Now that state matching funds are in hand to complete the new

Teaching Pavilion, we expect afull recovery.

While hurricanes loomed large, the Florida Museum will
likely remember 00oo4-05 as the Year of the Butterfly. On
Aug. 14 we celebrated the public opening of our fabulous
new McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity.
The 1.... ii.... vision of McGuire Center Director and
noted Lepidopterist Dr. Thomas C. Emmel, the $12 million
McGuire Center was three and one-half years in planning
and construction.

The most popular component of the McGuire Center is
the Butterfly Rainforest, a 6,400 square-foot, screened
outdoor enclosure with a ,it .. I 1 i i.. visitors to observe
live butterflies and moths from around the world in a lush,
tropical -* ii.... Visitor response has been overwhelming.
In the first year 127,ooo individuals visited the Butterfly
Rainforest which helped boost overall Museum attendance
to a record 236,ooo. At the same time, McGuire staff
members have garner, i .....1 i ...1 I ......i.. i fresearchand
.... ..... i .. ..I One such project involves a partnership
with Florida Museum educator Dr. Betty Dunckel to launch
project ButterflyWINGS supported by a $1.1 million National
Science Foundation grant. The Museum also added several
new McGuire Center faculty curators and collection staff in
the first year, and signed a memorandum of understanding
with the Florida Department of Agriculture's Division of
Plant Industryto house the Lepidoptera portion of the Florida
State Collection ofArthropods in the McGuire Center. I hope
you will read further in this report to discover more of the
details that make the McGuire Center so special.

Our McGuire Center was made possible
by the outstanding generosity of Bill and
Nadine McGuire of Wayzata, Minn. A $4 .-
millionleadershipgiftfromthe McGuires
was matched by the State of Florida in
2ooi to begin the project. A year later
the McGuire Family generously gave another $3 million to
expand the public dimension of the McGuire Center. With
additional assistance from our Monarch Society members
and matching staff support from the University of Florida,
S.. i .. ... ., ,..i ,1 i, ., of the McGuire family have created
a singular enterprise, unmatched around 1 .. ..1..

Perhaps overshadowed by the fanfare and success
.i ........ .1.. i..1 McGuireCenteristhefactthat oo4-05was
filled with noteworthy accomplishments in all corners of the
Museum. For instance, Florida Museum botanists received
a $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation's
Assembling the Tree of Life initiative to research the
origins and relationships of flowering plants, the second
of these extremely competitive grants for the Museum. We
collaborated with our Cultural Plaza partners in January
roo5 on a successful fund-raiser, the "British Invasion,"
which raised funds to benefit the Florida Museum, the Harn
Museum of Art and the Phillips Center for PerformingArts.
And, our newly opened "Hall of Florida Fossils: Evolution of
Life and Land" permanent exhibition, ...... .1 i 1.i..

chocolate and inspired thousands of chocoholics and theirfriends to visit the Florida Museum. Next
came Microbes: Invisible Invaders, Amazing Alliesfrom Clear Channel Exhibitions. This exhibit
exploring harmful as well as beneficial bacteria was popular with school classes and families. During
the summer we hosted Natural Curiosity: Artists Explore Florida, our own installation featuring
the original works of 18 local artists.

summer, the Museum designed a Discovery Room full of artifacts, materials and activities that encouraged family interaction
and fun. At the same time, staff from the Museum's Research and Collections division showcased some of our rarely seen
collections and talked with visitors about the Museum's research and conservation efforts.

Annual Report 2004-2005 E


With the increase of programming and Museum
attendance, the need for more volunteers became
very apparent. During the first six months after
the Butterfly Rainforest opened, the Museum
held more than 70 specialized sessions to train
interpreters who would interact with guests in
the exhibit. The Museum also revamped the Jr.
VolunteerProgram and trained nearly oo middle
and high school students to work as interpreters
at Discovery Carts stationed throughout the
Museum and as assistants during children's
classes and special events.

Docents participate in training programs that include
background information about the Museum's permanent
and temporary exhibits as well as effective techniques for
engaging students i, 1 ........ i1.......1i objects and exhibits.

* 400 individuals volunteered in the Museum, both
behind-the-scenes and ...i .i, ii. .-public
* Volunteers, including77 active docents, contributed
nearly 24,ooo hours to the Museum
* Docents Chris and Joan Schneider of Ocala received the
first Florida Museum James Pope CheneyVolunteer of
the Year Award


In order to make Museum programs, and now
the Butterfly Rainforest, accessible to all visitors
regardless of socioeconomic status, the Museum
has developed two programs to cover admission
and program fees. For those individuals who
want to participate in one of our Public Programs
and need assistance to do so, the Museum's
Scholarship Program covers the costs of those
activities. Funding for this program comes from
individual donations and revenue generated by
feesfrom other programs.

While general admission to the Museum's permanent
exhibits is free, we must charge admission to the Butterfly
Rainforest to make the exhibit ..ii .,,!!..i...i. Our
Admission Assistance Program was developed to provide
financial assistance to economically disadvantaged
individuals and groups in our community so that they
have the opportunity to experience the joy of interactive
learning at the Museum's living Butterfly Rainforest. The
Museum actively solicits contributions from individuals,
corporations and foundations to fund this program.

Development '

The opening of a new research and exhibition space is a special occasion for any museum andprovides
an exciting opportunity for staff, donors, visitors and friends to celebrate its contributions to science
and to the community at large. The Forida Museum of Natural History was fortunate to have such an
occasion lastAugust at the opening of the McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity and with it
the chance to honor the vision of benefactors Bill and Nadine McGuire and Director Tom Emmel.

The McGuires' extraordinary
generosityallowedthe Museum
to create this internationally
recognized center whose
hallmark is a comprehensive
approach to the study of
biodiversity. As ... as

been the momentum that they
have created iF..... 1. their

from a number of diverse individuals and .. .- i.. ...... The
Monarch Society, created last year to recognize donors who
commit at least $1o,ooo to the McGuire Center, has grown
to include 45 members. Numerous research and education
grants from private foundations and state and federal
agencies, i,.. hi.,o... i1.. Elizabeth Ordway Dunn Foundation,
the DisneyWildlife Conservation Fund, the National Fish and
Wildlife Foundation, and the Florida Wildflower Advisory
Council/Florida Wildflower Foundation, have been secured

the faculty and graduate students' work.

Other private gifts have built upon the McGuire legacy,

that would otherwise be unable to take advantage of its
programs and exhibitions. The Climb for Cancer Foundation
made a gift to create The Butterfly Connection, a program in
conjunction with the Arts in Medicine Program of Shands
Hospital that provides free admission to the Butterfly
Rainforest for cancer patients, their families and caregivers.
