The Paleontological Research Institution encourages critical thinking about past and current life on Earth, and how our species is affecting the natural world. Our two public venues for education, the Museum of the Earth and the Cayuga Nature Center, are innovative educational resources as well as economic catalysts for the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions. The Museum offers a unique mix of natural history exhibits, art exhibitions, and public programs all with a focus on Earth science. The Nature Center provides a living laboratory for teaching and learning about the impact of climate change on the fauna and flora of Tompkins County.

Last year marked two important milestones. First, the Nature Center became PRI's newest educational venue. Second, we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the Museum. In honor of these events, we launched Rock the Future: Inspiring the Earth Scientists of Tomorrow, a campaign to bring Earth science concepts to more than 350,000 Museum and Nature Center visitors, including 75,000 young children and their caregivers.
