Happy Birthday, Darwin!

Happy Birthday, Darwin!Our old buddy Charles Darwin turns 202 this Saturday and the Berkeley Natural History Museums aren't letting him forget it.

In addition to a Darwin-inspired photo contest, the Essig Museum of Entomology, on behalf of the Entomology Student Organization, will be giving several tours of their new museum space on Friday before a birthday party complete with photo judging and, you guessed it, cake!

And from all of us here at UCMP and the Berkeley Natural History Museums, have a happy Darwin Day!
