Walcott that held more than 65,000 specimens from the middle Cambrian Age; the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s first use of a telescope to study the skies; the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the USDA Forest Service Experimental Forest and Ranges; and the 40th anniversary of the moon landing.
