Master taxidermist Mike Orthober will be displaying his skills at the Door County Historical Museum on Saturday, July 15th from 10 am to 4:30 pm. Orthober has been building the museum’s “Season of Life” exhibit for twenty years, mounting a wide range of specimens including birds and mammals; this week, he will show viewers just how he creates his lifelike exhibits.
Orthober says he is continually adding to the museum’s collection, and he will give another demonstration on August 26th. Admission for both events is free. You can tour the exhibit and the rest of the Door County Historical Museum in Sturgeon Bay daily from 10 am to 4:30 pm.
