Smithsonian Soils Exhibit

Donor Recognition Levels

Scientists, educators and others interested in seeing the Smithsonian Soils Exhibit become a reality at the National Museum of Natural History may direct their gift to the national educational exhibit, or to one of the 50 long term state soil monoliths. Both will be displayed in the same room as one exhibit; the state monoliths will remain after the two year interactive educational components will be stored for future use or loaned to other museums.
