The Smithsonian Libraries, in conjunction with the National Museum of Natural History, will host a series of lectures on both Mark Catesby’s art and science on November 6. This gathering celebrates the 300th anniversary of Englishman Catesby’s arrival in North America. The visit to the Smithsonian is part of a six-day, three-city symposium that will include lectures from more than 20 presenters from various disciplines that include art, wildlife, natural history, conservation and economics. Organized by the Catesby Commemorative Trust, the symposium/tour is open to all Catesby lovers. Go to http://www.catesbytrust.org/ for information about how to join the tour!
