The Belton Area Museum Association (BAMA) announces its newest exhibit Natural Connections.  The exhibit focuses on the use of our personal spaces to create a natural connection, concentrating both on past and current trends. The exhibit features antique and vintage gardening tools, artwork and photographs of famous and local gardens, wildlife taxidermy, outdoor structures, collections of bugs and butterflies, and many other interesting items with connections to nature in our own backyards.

Sponsored by Creative Grant Solutions, the exhibit and opening celebration are free to the public. The exhibit will be on display March 23 – May 25.

Either because of necessity or aesthetics, people have dug in the dirt and connected to backyard nature in various ways.  Home gardens produced vegetables to feed ourselves. Flowering shrubs and bulbs, annuals and perennials were planted to beautify our surroundings, creating gardens both secret and luxuriously public.  We’ve brought in exotic plants to grace our homes and produced new strains using science and natural selection.  Pests are always a nuisance and gardeners have found innovative ways to deal with them.  Wildlife of all types abound in our backyards. And games and gatherings bring people together.

Come join us as we examine all aspects of our natural connections!

The Belton Area Museum Association is a place where people of all ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities can learn about and experience our area’s history and culture.  Museum admission is free.
