The new Margaret Bamberger Research and Education Center is unlike anything currently available to scientists and educators, and it represents the next chapter in Selah’s story.
Part museum, part living zoo, part research lab, part classroom: this new facility is all that and more.
Aptly named in her honor, construction began in early 2017 and was completed and furnished in the spring of 2018. It provides the place and the space for a museum quality collection that will forever document Selah’s biodiversity as well as a classroom and laboratories for scientists and students to work and learn.
It houses a growing and comprehensive collection of insects, an herbarium and preserved animals gathered from Selah by young students and university researchers.
