Natural Athletes: Track & Field Champs of the Animal Kingdom Reopening Celebration

Wednesday, June 8, 2022 at 5:00pm to 8:00pm

Museum of Natural and Cultural History
1680 E 15th Avenue, Eugene, OR

Hightail it to the museum for a track & field competition like no other—with tigers, kangaroos, chimps, and other mammals all going for gold! From the javelin throw to the high jump, learn which animals would triumph on the track, and explore the amazing adaptations that make it all possible. Through colorful displays and interactive stations, you’ll delve into TrackTown culture, learn about health and fitness research happening at the University of Oregon, and be inspired to move your body toward optimal wellness.

Join us for a special reopening celebration in the Galleria. First opened in March of 2020 but interrupted by the pandemic, we are excited to bring the exhibit back in honor of this summer's World Athletics Championships Oregon22.
