Furs, Skulls & Bird Mounts

A popular collection at birds-furs-skullsARLIS is its large selection of Alaskan animal furs, skulls, and bird mounts, available for check-out by any walk-in patron (ARLIS will not mail them due to their fragility).  The collection is frequently used by teachers and other educators, camp counselors, artists, and scout groups.  Most of the items were donated to ARLIS by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Wildlife Conservation Division. See also, Kits, for more hands-on items for the classroom. Links to collection guides are available at www.arlis.org/resources/for-educators/furs-skulls-bird-mounts/
