Darwin’s 211th Birthday Bash!

February 13, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Have you ever wondered what life was like thousands, or even millions of years ago? How did that transform into the Earth we know today? And how might our planet and its inhabitants look like in the future? Join us as we celebrate the Father of Evolution’s 211th birthday and explore how his discoveries aboard the HMS Beagle have transformed the way we think about our world!

Specimen preparation- As always, our Collections Manager and skinners will be turning dead animals into museum specimens. Ask questions and get hands-on with his dissections and preparations! Specimen preparation will be located in room 297.

Live animals- Get up close and personal with some special guests from the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium!

This is a free, family-friendly, drop-in event.

Join us on February 13th, from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. at the University of Puget Sound Campus (located at 1500 N Warner St, Tacoma, WA 98416) in Thompson Hall room 295.
