Welcome to the Natural History Collections Portal! This page is a product of the collaboration that began between QUBES and the Biodiversity Literacy in Undergraduate Education (BLUE) projects. BLUE is a community of biodiversity, data, and education specialists who are working together to identify core biodiversity data competencies for undergraduates, develop strategies for integrating these competencies into the introductory biology curriculum, and build capacity for sustained development and implementation of biodiversity and data literacy education. You can find more about BLUE here: https://www.biodiversityliteracy.com

The vision for this portal is to create a space for the broader collections-based education community to aggregate and disseminate resources. All individuals and projects with natural history collection-based educational materials for any grade levels, disciplines, and topics are invited to link materials to this portal.
