The Roger Tory Peterson Institute is excited to present our newest exhibition, “Roger Tory Peterson: The Life, The Work, The Legacy” from now until August 5, 2018. Peterson’s contributions, beginning with his pioneering field guides, have educated generations about nature worldwide; the knowledge and passion that he shared helped spark the global modern-day environmental movement, and his legacy continues to inspire and inform to this day. This exhibition, featuring never before seen original artwork alongside unique artifacts and memorabilia, tells Peterson’s story. Jane Johnson, RTPI’s Director of Exhibits and Special Collections, will offer a Guided Gallery Tour on Thursday, May 17th from 7-9pm. The cost for this program, a $10 donation, supports RTPI’s Art, Education, and Conservation initiatives. Please join us! RTPI is located at 311 Curtis Street in Jamestown.
