Happy Darwin Day!

Hofstra hosts its annual commemoration of the life and work of Charles Darwin, author of On the Origin of Species, this Wednesday, February 10, 11:15 a.m., at the Guthart Theater with birthday cake and a performance highlighting key moments in Darwin’s life in his own words and the words of his family, friends and colleagues.

Dr. Bret Bennington, chair of Hofstra’s Department of Geology, Environment and Sustainability, will join several other faculty and students to bring Mr. Darwin to life. Hofstra’s science community uses this annual celebration as an opportunity to encourage interest in the sciences and also to wish Darwin a happy birthday – this year he is 207 years young!
