Burke prepares for "Meet the Mammals"

Many hands make for quick work as a walrus head is secured to a column in the lobby of the Burke Museum, moved from a storage area preparing for this Saturday's event "Meet the Mammals," one of the big draws for the museum each year. Jeff Bradley, left, collection manager for mammalogy, leads the effort Tuesday. This specimen weighs around 100-pounds and was taken near St. Lawrence Island, Alaska by a non-Native in 1972 before the passage of the Marine Mammal Protection Act.
