Unnatural History, Darwin Day 2012

February 10th, 2012

“Toxic newts capable of poisoning humans, and the snakes that eat them. Delicate beauties and nightmarish monsters from the ocean depths. Plants that make a living sucking the life out of other plants…”

For all that and more, mark your calendar for UW-Madison’s annual Darwin Day(s), February 9-11, 2012.

The Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery will play host to a series of lectures and science stations, free and open to the public, that explore the science of evolution.

The UW-Madison Darwin Day website supplies the schedule of events, speakers and themes, and a list of teacher resources.

“There is grandeur in this view of life… from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”
–Charles Darwin
