Mysteries Below Ground @ Tallahassee Museum
May 27 all-day
Mysteries Below Ground @ Tallahassee Museum | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

In the first comprehensive and complete exhibit of its kind, Mysteries Below Ground explores the intricate workings of 25 underground ant nests. This exhibit will reveal the enormous range of size and complexity of ant nest structure and reflects the range of scales in which ants live their lives. The exhibit also dives into Dr. Walter Tschinkel’s method of metal casting and the ways in which metal casting reveals a complete, precise and detailed version of ant nest architecture. Dr. Tschinkel’s casts have been featured in 16 museums around the world, from Paris to Hong Kong, including two casts at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. This exhibit will only be here until June 10, 2018, so don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity.

Pandas: An IMAX Experience @ Challenger Learning Center  | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

Pandas are beloved around the world, and now they are coming to the big screen in the IMAX® original film “Pandas,” a breathtaking documentary adventure and amazing experience for the whole family. At Chengdu Panda Base in China, scientists are dedicated to protecting the species by breeding adult Giant Pandas in order to introduce cubs into the wild. This film follows one such researcher, whose passion leads her to initiate a new technique inspired by a black bear program in rural New Hampshire. What starts as a cross-culture collaboration becomes a life-changing journey for an American biologist who crosses an ocean to join her; a scientist from Inner Mongolia; and a very curious female cub named Qian Qian, born in captivity. Captured with IMAX® Cameras, join Qian Qian on an exciting new adventure in the mountains of Sichuan as she takes her first steps outside her protected habitat, discovering her true animal nature…even as she faces the challenges of the unknown.

Tallahassee Genealogical Society meeting - Court House Records, and How to Find Them @ LeRoy Collins Public Library |  |  |

We all think of court and probate records when we think of a visit to a court house, but there are many kinds of records that can be found. However, they may not be in the court house records office. You need to do your homework before you take that road trip, and make sure you are covering as many bases as you can. Mary Anne Price will cover the range of records you can find, and some places to check that might surprise you!

The meeting will be held in Program Room A of the downtown public library. Sharing time is at 1:30pm and the meeting starts at 2pm.
