Roosevelt Bank Participating in Museum’s Poison! Tour

Spooky Halloween vibes have come a little early to Roosevelt with a special exhibit from the Natural History Museum of Utah. For the past 16 years, the Salt Lake based museum has paired with Zions Bank locations throughout Utah to host a traveling exhibit known as the Traveling Treasures. Not for the faint in heart, this year’s traveling exhibit is titled Poison! “Recognizing the power of poison,” shares the Museum’s announcement, “people have sought magical protections from its harmful effects throughout history. Discover the surprising story of poison in this exhibit of specimens!” The unique and borderline creepy displays will be at the Roosevelt Zions Bank for the entire month of September and include poisonous plants, animals and minerals found in the natural world.
