The Canaries are back. John Cossel’s photographic exhibit “Naked Canaries” (about “naked” frogs and their declines in nature) has returned to the west hall on the second floor in the Thomas Family Health and Science Center after being on exhibit by invitation at Messiah College in Pennsylvania. Cossel gave guest lectures last spring as part of the exhibit opening in the Oakes Natural History Museum. (see photo below from the Messiah publication).
