Darwin Day

Darwindday2007_frontFebruary 12th, 2020 (Wednesday) 12:00 – 5:00pm

Each year, the Essig Museum celebrates Darwin’s birthday (February 12th) with special behind-the-scenes tours of our collection in the Valley Life Sciences Building. See specimens from the Galapagos such as finches, rodents, a marine iguana, and tortoise shell; herbarium specimens, live orchids and insectivorous plants; and learn how Darwin and other naturalists provided the foundation for our understanding of how evolution works in the natural world. RSVP to essig.museum@gmail.com for tours at 12:00, 1:00, 2:00, 3:00, or 4:00pm. Tours will meet at the foot of the Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton (you can’t miss it) in the Valley Life Science Building.
