Technician's Circle

The Technician's Circle began at the 2012 Southern Fall Conference during a round-table discussion hosted by Leslie Helliwell of the Environmental Nature Center. This network is for members of our field who are responsible for the fabrication, acquisition, maintenance, and repair of the equipment used to share our passion for nature. 

After this network was formed, Leslie created a blog, Holding Our Industry Together, to help organize and archive info for them - check it out! 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • taxidermy
  • permits for various types of animals
  • animal care
  • equipment storage
  • tools
  • technology
  • signage
  • archaeological replicas
  • exhibits
  • adhesives
  • the occasional humorous horror story
