Berkeley Natural History Museums Consortium
The BNHM consortium is comprised of six member museums and eight field stations. Many IB faculty and students are affiliated with the BNHM members.
The consortium was formed to collaborate on a number of different projects, including education and outreach, and targeted research projects. IB students have been active participants in the outreach project, Exploring California Biodiversity.
