Earth Day inspiration in Yale’s Collections

View Slideshow 15 Photos

In celebration of Earth Day, YaleNews invited some of the Yale collections to share images of the natural world throughout the centuries. Inspiration came in all forms from the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, the Yale Center for British Art, the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, the Yale University Art Gallery, and the Center for Social and Social Science Information, which is featuring the exhibition "Streams of Sustainability at Yale" through October. Our selection includes paintings, drawings, photographs, rare books, and ancient fossils of flora and fauna, from English cloud studies to Brazilian rainforests to prehistoric bats in Wyoming.
