Elm Fork Natural Heritage Museum

The mission of the Elm Fork Natural Heritage Museum is to provide opportunities to discover and share knowledge about plants, animals and their environment. In addition to providing resources to trained scientists, the museum provides resources for citizen scientists of all ages and backgrounds to explore natural history and especially to inspire in the young a lifelong interest in nature. Using specimens from the teaching collection, the museum has designed programs and tools to provide investigative encounters that engage students of all ages in discovery experiences.

The focus of the holdings at the UNT Elm Fork Natural Heritage Museum (ELFNHM) is its collection of North American aquatic insects and freshwater mussels. The collection is numbered at approximately 100,000 and 6000 specimens respectively. The centerpiece of this collection is the stonefly (Insecta: Plecoptera) nymphs and adults from North America and the Britton Freshwater Mussel collection.
