Darwin Day Scavenger Hunt for Families at The Smithsonian Natural Museum In Washington DC (Event on Saturday February 7th)

February 7, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Please join us for our 2nd Annual Darwin themed scavenger hunt at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. Our event will begin with an Impromptu meet and greet, then together we will make our very own Charles Darwin beard (simple fun craft) to wear throughout the museum…And then following instructions for our group Scavenger Hunt. Finally, we will end with a celebratory desert in Darwin’s honor (cake and party favors included!) Imagine that!

Please wear your Camp Quest T-Shirt or funny Darwin T-shirt!

This Darwin Day will be celebrated by the GLOBAL community as a toast to the common good of all humanity. We will all want to develop events to Celebrate Darwin, Science and Humanity and come together as one human family in appreciation of verifiable knowledge that has been acquired solely through human curiosity and ingenuity. Scientific knowledge has been of great value to all of us. It is our hope that the Celebration of Science and Humanity will be so well established that DURING THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR we will all want to continue to work to make February the 12th a International day to recognize Verifiable Scientific Knowledge and to appreciate the connection of Humankind to the acquisition of this knowledge.

** Please note ** This is not a Smithsonian Sponsored event. This event is hosted by The Gilmore Family and Camp Quest Chesapeake (Campquest.org) Campers and Counselors. This is a free event and open to everyone! If you wish to join us, please visit our Facebook page (Please like us for updates!) and message us for more information on location meet-up and instructions for Scavenger Hunt. Because the Museum is extremely busy on Saturdays, it’s extremely important that we have a head count of everyone attending. We look forward to meeting new faces and seeing CQ friends again!
