In the past, people had very different relationships to animals than they do today. This is especially true among the early European settlers in this region, who were struggling to carve a living out of the dense pacific rain forest.
As you will see through this photo collection, there was still room for affection and respect, and animals were often considered as important members of the family. There were no local pet stores or animal rescue societies, but an untamed wilderness at one’s doorstep lead to the adoption of many nonconventional animals.
The Museum has created a sixteen month calendar of photos selected from the exhibit that is for sale in the Museum Shop beginning November 23, 2013. Any proceeds from the calendar go towards the cost of creating temporary exhibits at the Museum.
