Renown taxidermist to be featured at Door County Museum

Master taxidermist Mike Orthober will be showcasing his skills at the Door County Historical Museum on June 29.  The “Season of Life” exhibit at the museum has been growing over the past twenty years.  Orthober has mounted a variety of specimens including birds and mammals.  He will be mounting a new bird and talking about the art and science of taxidermy.  Well known for his work in taxidermy, Orthober has won national and world-wide awards, including the “Best in World” for warm-water fish.  He shares some of the more challenging subjects he has worked on in the nature diorama.

 

 

Orthober will be at the Door County Historical Museum from 10 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. next Saturday, June 29th.  He will have two other planned demonstrations later this summer on July 20th and August 24th.   Admission is free to the museum which is located on North Fourth Avenue in downtown Sturgeon Bay.
