Join us at the largest event of its kind in the country! Spend a day learning about Darwin and what his theories of natural selection have done for the world of science, research and education. Meet some of the scientists who are continuing his work, and learn how Darwin’s theories are being applied in cutting-edge research. In addition to hands-on science education stations, there will be crafts and games for all ages.

We need volunteers for Darwin Day!  Sign up here.


Special Program: Tea with Darwin!

1:00pm: An Interview with Mr. Charles Darwin Upon His Return From His Voyage on HMS Beagle
