The Mississippi Museum of Natural Science has a scarecrow trail. The scarecrows found on the trail are for local families and businesses. I made a scarecrow for MSO. Dr. Betsy Sullivan participated in this event. The scarecrow has a sign that identifies it as Delta Kappa Gamma. She developed a QR code for visitors to scan to learn more about MSO (linked it to the "About Us" page).
The scarecrows will be displayed in MMNS's native plant garden’s “Scarecrow Garden” through November 1, 2021 – giving museum visitors a fun, outdoor stroll!
Visitors will vote on the “Scarecrow Garden Contest” post on the museum’s Facebook page by liking their favorite scarecrow’s photo. The individual or family scarecrow with the most “likes” wins one MS Museum of Natural Science Foundation Membership! All voters will be entered into a separate drawing for a chance to win one MS Museum of Natural Science Foundation Membership, too.
Congratulations to Lindsay Griffin! Her photographs "Simple Things" and "Everything Has a Purpose" have been accepted into the DKG Fine Arts Gallery. According to Lindsay, "Simple Things" was inspired by the poem "Little Things" by Julia Abigail Fletcher Carney. The unveiling of the new DKG Fine Arts Gallery will be mid-November. Lindsay's work will be displayed in the gallery for six months, after which it will be archived for two years.
