The Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture on the campus of the University of Washington sponsors a variety of public lectures, demonstrations, and virtual exhibits. This website provides interested parties with access to their podcasts, photos, and video clips. First-time visitors can stop by the "Highlights" area to see photos from their recent "Dino Day", a video of graduate students talking about their research trip to Antarctica, and a behind the scenes tour with ethnology collections manager Rebecca Andrews. The podcast area contains talks with geologist David B. Williams on his book about urban geology and a Q&A session with Dr. Richard Leakey, and the podcasts can be subscribed to as well. The "Virtual Exhibits" area is particularly strong in its coverage of Pacific Northwest Indian culture. Here visitors will find a fine exhibit on totem poles in the region and the model village of Skidegate, home to the Haida people. Finally, visitors can also sign up for their Twitter feed here as well.
