Darwin Day Celebration

Students and faculty joined Dr. Bret Bennington, chair of the Department of Geology, Environment and Sustainability, in celebrating the life and work of Charles Darwin in advance of Darwin Day.

Friday, February 12th marks Darwin’s 207th birthday, and what better way to celebrate than with cake and a performance in his honor? The annual performance highlighted key moments in the geologist’s life in his own words and the words of his family, friends and colleagues. The event ended with a theater full of people singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Mr. Darwin, followed by the cutting (and eating) of the birthday cake.
