Why celebrate Charles Darwin's Birthday?

  1. to show appreciation for an amazing scientist, thinker, and all-around nice guy
  2. to showcase Darwin, evolution and natural selection in a positive, fun light
  3. to encourage education in evolution, natural selection and the life & times of Charles Darwin

Darwin Day 2017



A time machine takes us back 500 million years and -POOF!- we're in the Cambrian.

Piece together a group of diverse trilobites,
Color your favorite trilobite sticker,
Make your own little cephalon masks,
and pose for a picture in a Cambrian habitat!


Thank you, volunteers!
