We are currently open to members of the UC Davis and research communities who are vaccinated and/or have had a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours per UC Davis policy. We need to focus on training our new interns and safely greeting the new UC Davis students first before we can open to the general public. Our store is on-line and items can be shipped or picked up curbside on Friday mornings. Please contact us by email at bmuseum[at]ucdavis.edu.
The Bohart Museum relies on donations to thrive. Specimens from hundreds of donors, large and small, are found in our collection. Contact the museum if you or someone you know would like to donate their collection of insects. You may be eligible for a substantial tax deduction (see your tax accountant). Specimens in accepted collections must have location data associated with them. Donors of large collections may be solicited for funds to help us incorporate the specimens into our main collection.
