##### The Race Between Climate Change and Natural Selection
Presenting the 26th fabulous year of the Darwin Day Birthday Gala, Sacramento’s coolest, most singular, most go-to event of science and humanity, brought to you by area science advocates, civic groups and nerds on too much coffee. This year an in-person event, marking “Chuck” Darwin’s 214rd birthday. Open to all. But tickets required.
How often have we said it …? Darwin Day is a science-rush like no other. A celebration of scientific inquiry honoring of the life and work of the great Charles Darwin (b. 12 February 1809), sponsored worldwide by community and educational groups. We commend it to all our friends in the Sacramento community of reason. Because science! And what’s science but reason in the trenches?
For background on this mind-growing event, visit DarwinDay.org, the international website.
The 2022 program will begin at 6:30 o’clock post meridiem. Key speaker will be Dr. Rachael Bay (see smiling pic), of the Coastal and Marine Science Institute at UC Davis. Dr. Bay leads a group of researchers at The Bay Lab, aiming for insights into how organisms survive in environments and how anthropogenic environmental changes impact individuals, populations, and species.
How to attend:
Get a ticket. Unlike most Sac-FAN events, this has underlining costs and is not free. But tickets are not pricey, and this is no time to grinch. $20 adult, or $6 for students. Ticket link:
