We are issuing a Call to Action to all Los Angeles County residents to participate in the upcoming 2010 Census! Every 10 years, our Constitution requires the federal government to make an accurate count of all of its residents. It calls on everyone to be counted and to make their voices heard. The Census is too important to leave anything to chance. An accurate count helps determine how many teachers are needed in our classrooms; where to build new roads; how much funding is needed for emergency food and shelter programs; and how many representatives we have in our nation’s capital.
In its ongoing quest to transform itself from a stodgy repository of scientific specimens and artifacts to a lively learning center about the mysteries of life on Earth, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County on Wednesday will launch a new website. The site, www.nhm.org, is intended to appeal to a broad audience with a fresh look that includes eye-catching images and multimedia content.
