A Message From the Director

The Florida Museum: Long in the Tooth (andproud ofit)

In 2006 the University of Florida celebrated 100 years in
Gainesville. A century ago UF opened its doors at its present
location where it began educating university students, playing
college football and laying the foundation for what has become
one of the largest and finest public universities in the nation.
Perhaps overlooked in the campus centennial celebrations was
the fact that the Florida Museum of Natural History also marked
its 100th anniversary in Gainesville in 2006. The natural history
collections and displays that formed the backbone of the early
Museum had a late 19th-century origin at the Florida Agricultural College in nearby Lake City.
When that institution closed its doors in 1905, the collections were transferred to UF in 1906.

After arriving in Gainesville, the collections were initially displayed in Thomas Hall (a dormitory)
until they could be moved into the first real home to the Museum, Science Hall (now Flint Hall),
in 1910. The first Museum director, Thompson Van H !t! _. was hired in 1914 and in 1917 the
Florida Legislature designated the Florida State Museum as Florida's official museum of natural
history.

This 2006-2007 Annual Report features some wonderful photographs from the Museum's early
years. A brief outline of our institutional history is also included in these pages courtesy of Darcie
MacMahon, Head of Exhibits and unofficial museum historian.

As we enter our second century in Gainesville, it's particularly satisfying for me to observe the
growth and vibrancy of the Museum. Today we are an institution with a _-, million budget, 28
million specimens in our scientific collections and more than 200 full- and part-time employees
on the payroll. But more importantly, we remain committed to our mission of preserving,
understanding and interpreting the natural and cultural worlds, a mission just as relevant in this
century as in the last.

If celebrating 100 successful years qualifies the Florida Museum as "long-in-the-tooth," we accept
the title with pride. Alternatively, the huge shark teeth from our collections shown on the cover of
this report, and the photos inside of our award-winning traveling exhibit, Megalodon: Largest Shark
that Ever Lived, .... I we earned it.

2006-2007 Annual Report I 3









Collections and Research
Vigorous growth of the Florida Museum's research and curatorial activities helped the
collections increase to more than 28 million objects. The majority of these specimens are
housed in Dickinson Hall along with the associated field notes, photographs, databases
and libraries that enhance their irreplaceable scientific value.
The Museum brought in more than $3.6 million in new and continuing multi-year grants to
support research, collections, curation and education. Museum research focuses on studies of DNA, anatomy, ecology
and behavior, and the evolution of plants, animals, and human cultures. While the Museum's primary research and
collections strengths are focused in Florida, the southeastern United States and the Caribbean, the programs span the
globe. Most of the collections of plants, animals, fossils and artifacts rank among the top 10 in the United States, if not
in the world.

McGuire Center for Lepidoptera

and Biodiversity

The McGuire Centerfor Lepidoptera and Biodiversity continued to acquire major
private and public collections of butterfly and moth specimens as well as scientific library materials from
around the world, and continues to house one of the world's largest Lepidoptera collections.


Highlights:
Worked with Museum administration to take
operational control of the Butterfly Rainforest
exhibit.
Established the Florida Biodiversity Foundation, a
non-profit support organization to receive future
revenue for the McGuire Center and Museum from
the sale of a specialty Florida license tag with a
Miami Blue butterfly image and message to help
save Florida's biological heritage.
Conservation activities included continued captive
propagation of thousands of Miami Blue butterflies
at the Museum and their release in various sites
across south Florida to try to re-establish this
endangered species in the wild.
Curators and graduate students traveled to
numerous countries as far away asJapan to collect
new species, add specimens to the McGuire Center
collections, conduct research and attend scientific
meetings and conferences.



The Florida Museum at 100

This year (11-100 marked the centennial of the
Florida Museum on the University of Florida
campus. Such a big number inspires reflection on
humble beginnings and the Museum's evolution into
the nationalpowerhouse it is today.

Although not officially chartered by state law until 1917,
the Museum had a much earlier identity. Professors
first assembled collections as a teaching resource in
1891 at Florida Agricultural College in Lake City. The Florida Museum Exhibits Director Darcie MacMahon interviews former
collections grew, but the school closed in 1905. In 1906, Museum Director_ .C. Dickinson, 90, at his home. (2006)
the collections were transferred to the new University of
Florida campus, and thus began the Museum. Displayed first in dormitory Thomas Hall, the collections moved to the
basement of Science Hall (later named Flint Hall) in 1910. The first Museum director, Thompson Van Hyning, came
on board in 1914. The Museum was open to the public and scientists used the collections. Growth led to a 1937 move off
campus to the Seagle Building in downtown Gainesville, where generations of school children enjoyed the displays.

Additional collections growth led to a new building back on campus when Dickinson Hall became the Museum's home
in 1971. In 1998, a new Education and Exhibition Center (Powell Hall) allowed the Museum to expand its public
presence. This expansion continued in 2004 with the opening of the McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity
and its Butterfly Rainforest living exhibit. Today the Museum is nationally and internationally recognized for its
research and public education programs.

Exhibits and Public Programs

The Florida Museum launched a new traveling exhibit initiative to reach national audiences and continued
active temporary exhibition and education programs. More than 214,000 individuals visited the Florida
Museum last year, and outreach programs touched more than 37,000 people.

Traveling Exhibits


After years of focusing resources on new permanent exhibitions, this year the Museum reinvigorated
its traveling exhibition program. The Museum added the impressive new Megalodon exhibition to the
roster and is planning additional exhibits to further showcase Museum collections and research for
state and national audiences.

Other current traveling exhibitions include: TUSKS! Ice Age A Mammoths and Mastodons, Journal of Light:
A Photographer's Search for the Soul of Florida, and Fort Mose: ColonialAmerica's Black Fortress of Freedom.

Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived opened in Gainesville in June and will travel throughout
Florida and the United States in coming years. Based on Florida Museum research, the exhibit was
funded in part by a $75,000 National Science Foundation grant. Visitors enter the 5,000-square-
foot exhibit through the jaws of a 60-foot-long Megalodon sculpture and begin to learn about the
evolution, biology and misconceptions of this enormous prehistoric shark that once cruised all the
world's oceans. Museum scientists and artists collaborated to produce this state-of-the-art exhibit,
which is popular among visitors.

mixed media -In the Open: Sandhill Crane Studies.
* To celebrate an international African Studies
conference, the Museum hosted African
Pathways to Urbanism -archaeologist Peter
Schmidt's photographic study of ancient
urban centers in the Horn of Africa.


* In April, the Museum opened a temporary exhibit
of seven study paintings and a self-portrait by
renowned paleo-artist Charles R. Knight (1874-
1953) in the Hall of Florida Fossils. Knight
completed the paintings, on temporary loan from
his granddaughter Rhoda Knight Kalt of New
York, nearly a century ago as studies for some of his
famous large murals.
* As the year drew to a close, the Museum opened its
own Megalodon exhibit. Shark and fossil enthusiasts
rallied around the exhibit opening and excited
crowds poured in to explore this ancient beast's
story. This summer kick-off nearly doubled last
year's summer attendance.


Other temporary exhibitions included the ninth annual
Trashformations -high school and college student art
made from recycled material. In the Children's Natural
History Gallery, several exhibitions of Alachua County
student artwork explored the themes of our temporary
exhibits.

The Florida Museum also was one of 30 museums
nationwide to show the film "Flock of Dodos: The
Evolution-Intelligent Design Circus" on Darwin Day in
honor of the anniversary of Charles Darwin's birthday on
Feb. 12, 1809. The free screening at the Harn Museum
of Art played to a packed house and was followed
by a discussion led by Frederick Gregory of the UF
Department of History and Florida Museum Vertebrate
Paleontology Curator Bruce MacFadden.

..-. "Educational Programming
More than 83, 000 visitors participated in an array of educational
programming during 2006-07 and Museum outreach programs
reached nearly 37,000. These programs include curriculum-

I based tours for students, home school classes, teacher workshops,
weekday and weekend classes for children, summer camps, adult
workshops, outreach programs to schools and community centers
and other public events.

Museum education programs focus on collection strengths and staff
expertise, and are developed in response to needs articulated by our
various audiences. Underpinning these objectives are the central
notions that the Museum's education initiatives should engage diverse
audiences and promote understanding of the processes and findings of
science, specifically natural history. The Museum's education programs
bridge our scientific research, fieldwork and collections to the public's
interest and concern for Florida's past and future natural environments
and cultural heritage. Through the financial support of the Cultural
Support Grants, the Florida Museum was able to hire one full- and
several part-time staff to develop, produce and implement a wide variety
of programming.

Public Programs 1 IW

More than 35,600 adults and children participated in --
public programming at the Museum. These activities I
included summer camps, adult workshops and classes,
field trips, lectures, weekend and school holiday classes U
for kids, and a preschool program for tots and parents.
Adult classes ranged from Sunday afternoon lectures to
workshops on butterfly photography, native gardening,
and quilting. Museum Nights expanded to include
themed programming such as Starry Kights, Can Tou Dig
It? and Day of the Dead through partnerships with the UF
departments of Astronomy and Geological Sciences,
as well as the Center for International Studies and
the Mexican-American Student Organization. These
programs were very successful and drew from 370
1,100 visitors per evening. Wigglers and Walkers and the
Let's Explore Science Series continued to grow in popularity
and a new field camp program was successfully piloted
for fifth- and sixth-grade students.

The Museum's public programs also included annual
and special events such as Collectors Day, Earth Day,
Trashformations and Family Days at each exhibition
opening. Attendance at these events ranged from 500 to
more than 3,000 visitors per event. On Oct. 14-15, the
Florida Museum hosted its first Butterfly Festival,
reaching about 5,000 visitors from around the country.
During the summer, the Museum unveiled its newly
designed Discovery Room that includes new exhibit
components as well as the usual artifacts, materials and
activities that encourage family interaction and fun. Specific
programming was developed and offered each week.

Assistance Programs

The Florida Museum strives to make its exhibits
and programs accessible to all visitors, regardless of
socioeconomic status. While general admission to the
Museum is free, there is an admission charge for the
living Butterfly Rainforest exhibit. In an effort to make
this exhibit and our fee-based programs accessible to
everyone, we have developed several assistance funds to
offset the fees. The Museum actively solicits contributions
from individuals, corporations and foundations for the
exclusive purpose of offering these programs. Along with
free admission and two assistance funds, the Museum's
Special Events (exhibit openings, Museum Nights,
Discovery Room and family days) are always free and
open to the general public.


Volunteers

The Volunteer Program at the Museum continues to grow
and expand alongside attendance and programming.
Nearly 625 volunteers provided 23,542 hours to the
Museum this past year. The newest program for middle
and high-school students Junior Volunteers -increased
from 70 to 115 students. TheseJVs are trained to work as
interpreters in the Discovery Room, at Discovery Carts
stationed throughout the Museum, and as classroom
assistants during kids classes and summer camps. All
Museum volunteers participate in enrichment programs
held throughout the year. These include training sessions
on the permanent and temporary exhibits as well as
effective techniques for engaging students in learning
through objects and exhibits. From docents who work
with visiting school groups to individuals working
behind-the-scenes in research and collections, volunteers
provide a wealth of knowledge, expertise and time to
the institution and its visitors. Docents Jaime and Ada
Irizarry received the annual Florida Museum James
Pope Cheney Volunteer of the Year Award for their
combined 13 years (more than 1,000 hours) of hard work
and dedication.


More than 47,400 pre-k through 121h-grade students
participated in educational programming either at the
Museum or through Inquiry Box outreach presentations
at their schools. On-site programs included docent-
led guided tours of permanent and temporary exhibit
galleries, four-week home school programs and Outdoor
Naturalist programs such as Eye on Insects utilizing the
UF Natural Area Teaching Laboratory south of the
Museum. Expansion of the Inquiry Box outreach
program included the addition of three new topics
Butterflies and Moths, Geology ofFlorida and Florida's Fossils
as well as the revision of existing materials and activities
for the other boxes.

Center for Informal Science Education


New funding for the Museum's Center for
Informal Science Education allowed continued
implementation ofMarvelous Explorations through
Science and Stories in Alachua and Marion
counties, andpiloting of Project Butterfly WLIGS:
Winning Investigative Network for Great Science
throughout the 4-H Southern Region.

Highlights:

* The Administration for Children and Families
awarded a $361,869 Head Start Innovation and
Improvement Projects year two implementation
grant for An Innovative Science-based Head Start Literacy
Curriculum: Expansion and Evaluation of Marvelous
Explorations through Science and Stories in Marion
County. A collaborative project with Childhood
Development Services, Inc. of Marion County,
Marion County Public Library System, Silver River
Museum and Environmental Education Center, and
Marion County Public Schools, the program is a
science-centered early childhood curriculum with
nine monthly, sequential units. Each unit includes
a teacher's guide, science tools and materials,
children's books and other media, and materials
for children to take home and share with their
families. The program provides teacher training and
structured opportunities for family engagement.
* A Community Agency Partnership Program
Grant of $57,499 from the Alachua County Board
of County Commissioners provided funding to
continue implementation of Marvelous Explorations
through Science and Stories in 36 Head Start classrooms
in Alachua County. Partners are the School Board
of Alachua County Head Start/School Readiness
and Alachua County Library District/Youth
Services. The program was recognized during the
August 2006 School Board meeting for receiving
the National Head Start Family Literacy Award
and Head Start Region IV Family Literacy Award.


* Project Butterfly WINGS: Winning Investigative Network
for Great Science, an informal science education
program for 4-H youth ages 9 to 13, completed
a three-year pilot project in 12 southern states.
A final evaluation of the project shows WINGS
changes the way youth think about science,
engages youth in a meaningful way with nature,
fosters interest in science, and promotes teamwork
and social connections. WINGS, developed by
the Museum in collaboration with UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension
and funded in part by a grant from the National
Science Foundation, uses butterfly investigations
to develop science inquiry and life skills. WINGS
participants explore the outdoors through guided
inquiry, learn to identify common butterflies, and
contribute to science by tracking butterflies and
sharing their results online as part of a citizen
science initiative. WINGS was conditionally
accepted as a National 4-H Curriculum.
* The Center for Informal Science Education,
McGuire Center, IFAS Extension, and Exhibits and

Development

Private gifts have helped build the Florida Museum into the largest
collections-based museum in the southeastern United States and the fifth-
largest natural history museum nationwide in terms of collection size. The
extraordinary growth of the last 10 years in new facilities, research and
programs would not have been possible without the generosity ofprivate dono .
who believe in the importance of understanding and preserving life on earth.


The Florida Museum will need to build upon its solid
donor base to continue research in conservation biology,
earth science and cultural heritage and archaeology,
and to maintain public exhibitions and programs that
advance science education for the public. The following
fundraising priorities focus on endowment growth and
facilities and will allow the Museum to best serve its
local, state and national audiences.
* Endowments to support faculty, students,
research and collections. Private funding for
endowments creates permanent, reliable sources of revenue
for the Museum's expanding collections and research
programs. Chairs, professorships, and fellowships allow
the Museum to attract the best and brightest faculty
and students who conduct cutting-edge science.
* Endowments to support exhibitions and
programs. The Florida Museum hosts national
traveling exhibitions of the highest quality in addition
to creating its own. Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever
Lived is one example that showcases Museum faculty
research and exhibit design. Endowed funds to support
these programs ensure the Museum will continue to
offer visitors outstanding educational opportunities.
* New facilities. Demand for education classes,
summer camps and preview lectures is well beyond
Powell Hall's current capacity. Likewise, Dickinson
Hall has reached maximum capacity for faculty and
student research space and collections storage. To
provide additional space for programs and a growing
audience for public science education, and to adequately
house all research and collections activities under one
roof, the Florida Museum has identified two facilities
needs: an addition to Powell Hall that includes an
auditorium, classroom, design studios, storage and
administrative spaces; and a research and collections
building adjacent to Powell and McGuire Halls.


The Florida Museum ...L... l
significant progress t .
toward building its end-l inutl,[ '
and collections. An extraordinary
pledge of $1.5 million will establish the Jon L. and
Beverly A. Thompson Chair in Invertebrate Paleontology.
Ken and Linda McGurn made a $500,000 gift to name
the McGurn Director's Endowment, which supports
the highest priorities of the Museum director. Both of
these generous gifts are eligible for state matching, thus
increasing their impact and benefit. Dr. William W.
McGuire donated a rare and remarkable collection of
3,000 Birdwing butterflies, some of the largest and most
beautiful in the world. These and all other gifts received
in the past year contribute to the Museum's success in
scientific research and public education.

Support the Museum

Every gift to the Florida Museum of Natural History whether
of time, resources or collections -enhances and expands all
of its activities and thus the quality of the visitor experience.
There are a variety of ways to contribute to the Museum and
its mission, and participation is welcomed at any level.


Membership
JO IN The Florida Museum's
members form the core
theMUSEUM! of its support and are
important participants in its programs and advocates in
the community. In fiscal 2006-07 membership grew 7
percent to almost 900 Associates and Curators Society
donors.
Memberships support all areas of the Museum as well
as the members' preview lectures and special events. In
the past year previews were held for Hatching the Past:
The Great Dinosaur Egg Hunt and Tibet: Mountains and .
Valleys, Castles and Tents. The largest preview was for the
Museum's own Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived,
which drew more than 500 members and guests. The
Museum also offered a Tastes, Tunes and Treasures VIP
Open House featuring the Malacology Collection. Guests
viewed a selection of the finest specimens of corals, shells
and mollusks from Dickinson Hall and interacted with
curators and students.
The Florida Museum Associates Board renewed the
longstanding tradition of Passport galas by hosting
Passport to Carnivale Around the World on Feb. 9. Board
members, community sponsors, host committee
members and other attendees raised more than $40,000
to fund Museum research and programs while enjoying
an evening of fabulous costumes, decorations, dancing
and international cuisine.
Museum staff are developing several new member
initiatives. Member benefits have been expanded to
include free or reduced admission to all fee-based
special exhibitions, and the Museum soon will offer a
combination Membership/Butterfly Rainforest Annual
Pass program. The Museum's member web site also has
been redesigned and a member survey was conducted
to help the Museum determine which benefits are most
meaningful to members, and how it can provide the best In lfl l i i
service and value in the future. IFJ
