In November 2020, the Audubon Museum & Nature Center at John James Audubon State Park participated in the popular annual #Museum30 challenge on Twitter. Museums and those who love them celebrated museums, objects, and history by sharing photos inspired by daily prompts. Gracie Price, a conservation practice student in the United Kingdom and author of the Magnifying Zoology blog, started the #Museum30 challenge in 2017 as a way to connect museum professionals and provide opportunities for them to share their work. You can read more about the history of the #Museum30 challenge here.
Below is a compilation of our #Museum30 posts from November 1 to November 30, 2020 on the John James Audubon State Park Twitter account @JJAStatePark. Two days were skipped (November 22 and 26). We published 35 posts, which earned 5,889 impressions (the number of times users saw a tweet on Twitter). It was the first time the Audubon Museum had participated in the #Museum30 challenge and marked another effort by the museum this year to promote its collection to a wider audience.
