After 52 years as curator of Trailside Museum of Natural History, Virginia Moe and Trailside are almost synonymous. If a name is to be applied to Trailside it should be hers. Hal Tyrell may have been a fine person, but he has nothing to do with Trailside. Did he ever even set foot in it? At any rate, although the place now is not for the rehabilitation of wild creatures as it was when Virginia Moe was curator, at least it is still in the business of educating people about wildlife and the woods as she did. It seems only fair that her 52 years of dedicated work there should result in her name being given to the place.
