NHC3: A Student Led Approach to Restoring Interest in Natural History Collections.

The Arkansas State University chapter of the Natural History Collections Curation Club (NHC3) is an organization of graduate, undergraduate, and faculty to provide any person interested in the curation of biological and botanical specimens with the opportunity to learn and be a part of unique research opportunities, traveling, and networking, and skill evolution that all come with this field. Opportunities such skeletal reconstruction, fish rehydration, field trips and specimen gatherings to allow students to add these useful skills to any CV or resume. Students also gain a sense of giving back with the numerous opportunities for community outreach and volunteer hours. No other campus organization provides as many opportunities for hands-on, faculty guided research and professional presentations as NHC3. In efforts to spread an awareness of the importance of natural history collections, a national network of NHC3 clubs have been created.
