Natural History Museum Hosts Turkey Talk Event on November 12

turkey-talkBREWSTER – As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, join Cape Cod Museum of Natural History volunteer Naturalist Irwin Schorr, for an enlightening and fun-filled program on the history of turkeys, the myths surrounding them and their importance to Americans as a Thanksgiving meal.

The discussion will encompass a general talk about the difference between wild and domestic turkeys, if the turkey was really part of the Pilgrim’s meal, why turkeys have both dark and white meat, if they really drown in a rain storm and how Wild Turkey Bourbon got its name.

Schorr has been a Field Guide leader and program presenter at the Museum for over 10 years and has been involved in the training of new volunteer field guides.

The program is appropriate for people of all ages, including school age children and is free with museum admission.

The event will be held on November 12 at 1 p.m.

The Museum of Natural History integrates the three strands of its organizational identity – as museum of natural history, nature education center, and steward of conservation land.

As a small museum of natural history, they preserve, exhibit, and interpret their own collections of natural history artifacts and display relevant traveling and loan exhibits.

They may also collaborate with local and regional organizations on co-sponsored exhibits.

The mission of the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History is to inspire appreciation, understanding and stewardship of our natural environment through discovery and learning.
