Celebrating its new designation as a Smithsonian Affiliate, the University of Nebraska State Museum welcomed Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History Sant Director Dr. Kirk Johnson to campus to discuss his appreciation for the paleontology of Nebraska and for the unique stories that it tells.  Johnson’s past research has involved work at hundreds of fossil sites in the American West. While at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, he curated the Prehistoric Journey exhibition and wrote the book, Cruisin’ the Fossil Freeway: An Epoch Tale of a Scientist and an Artist on the Ultimate 5,000-mile Paleo Road Trip.
