Quantum Leap Field Trip to New Harmony

August 18, 2018

This tiny Indiana town was once the center of the American scientific community. It was from here that early and significant surveys of North American flora, fauna and geology were conducted; one of the famous Owen brothers went on to found the Smithsonian Institution. During this one-of-a-kind tour of New Harmony, you’ll meet geologists, archaeologists and historians helping to tell this story today, as well as see some of the original specimens and maps collected and created more than 150 years ago.

Cost: $15

Funded project of Indiana Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
