In 1976 a group of members of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History started the Kirtlandia Society naming it in honor of Dr. Jared Potter Kirtland, one of the founding fathers of the Museum. The Kirtlandia Society performs the role of a public service organization for the Museum by supporting a number of it's scientific research and educational programs.
WHAT DOES THE KIRTLANDIA SOCIETY DO?
The Kirtlandia Society provides financial support, organizational support, and assistance to several different Museum programs including the very sucessful Dr. Donald S. Dean Adopt-A-Student Program, the Kirtlandia Journal (the scientific publication of the Museum), the Science Resource Center, the Discovery Center, and the Museum's Education Department.
