THE REALITY OF CLIMATE CHANGE: A PATH FORWARD
What is Darwin Day? It is a science rush like no other, an annual celebration of scientific inquiry honoring the life and work of the great Charles Darwin (born February 12, 1809), and sponsored worldwide by community and educational groups. This will be Sacramento’s 20th annual Darwin Day event.
Currently, Tom Suchanek is Scientist Emeritus with the USGS Western Ecological Research Center (WERC). Trained as a coastal marine ecologist, he was a Research Manager, Lead Scientist and Climate Change Science Coordinator for WERC in Sacramento, CA until January 2014. He also maintains active Research Associate appointments at the U.C. Davis Department of Wildlife, Fish and Conservation Biology and Bodega Marine Lab.
The afternoon celebration of science includes entertainment by “Mad Science.” We close the event by singing “Happy Birthday Dear Charlie,” followed by refreshments including our well-known Charles Darwin birthday cakes.
Cost of Admission: Advance payments of $10 per person will be accepted online or by mail until February 6. At the event, the price is $15 per non-student, or for student with ID, $10. The event flyer (see link below) includes a payment form and the address for mailed payments.
