Nature collection on display
Tuesday, March 25, 2014 11:02 AM

Last week, a new display case was unveiled at the Black Swamp Nature Center building in Paulding. It contains a sampling of specimens from the collection of the late Homer Price, including bird nests, bird and reptile eggs, animal skulls and journals.

e spent most of his life studying and documenting Paulding County’s plants and animals. The bulk of Price’s collection is at the John Paulding Historical Society, including taxidermy specimens and journals covering insects, butterflies, snails, birds and more.

SWCD education specialist Mark Holtsberry built the cabinet for the display, which is a joint project with the historical society. Anyone interested in studying Price’s journals, records or specimens should contact the historical society.
