The six biodiversity colleges of UC Davis will open their doors Saturday for Biodiversity Museum Day, an annual event during which the public will have access to rarely seen specimens and artifacts.
In commemoration of Charles Darwin’s birthday, visitors will be able to view collections from the Center for Plant Diversity, the Botanical Conservatory, the Paleontology Collections, the Anthropology Collections, the Museum of Wildlife and Fish Biology, and the Bohart Museum of Entomology between noon and 4 p.m. Saturday. The departments are located throughout the campus.
Museum staff will perform various educational demonstrations, such as specimen preparation and ancient arrowhead carving, throughout the day and hands-on activities will be available for children. Both admission to the event and campus parking are free.
