Fall is an exciting and busy time for our avian researchers at Powdermill Nature Reserve, Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s environmental research center in Rector Pennsylvania. As birds migrate south, thousands fly through Powdermill, where they are identified, banded, and studied before they continue their long journey to their winter nesting grounds. In addition to being positioned for Appalachian-specific studies in ornithology, ecology, invertebrate zoology, and botany, Powdermill is a great place to spend a fun-filled day outdoors with the family.
“My dad tried to convince me to be an engineer or a doctor, but I wasn’t having it,” recounts Geovette Washington, senior vice chancellor and chief legal officer at the University of Pittsburgh and chair of the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh’s Board of Trustees.

But when people hear her name years from now, it’s not the titles she hopes they’ll remember.
