A woman's hands hold an ipad with an image of the Sturgeon Harpoon knowledge web. She is standing in the Beaty Museum's fish collection. Sheila, a museum interpreter in a red vest, stands around a bank of drawers in the tetrapod collection delivering a museum tour, she is holding a cougar skull and is pointing to the teeth. On the surface in front of her are two wings, a taxidermied owl, and two skulls. A small group of museum visitors of varying ages, genders, and ethnicities stand and listen.
