Wild at Heart: Ernest Thompson Seton

How One Wolf’s Death Led to a Century of Wildlife Conservation

May 23, 2010 through May 8, 2011

Wild at Heart: Ernest Thompson Seton dedicates itself to telling the often overlooked story of the conservationist, author, artist, lecturer and co-founder of the Boy Scouts of America. Ernest Thompson Seton’s impact on America’s conservation movement was immeasurable but, today is largely forgotten. Wild at Heart: Ernest Thompson Seton sets out to change that.

A yearlong set of workshops and lectures supports the exhibit.
