Darwin Family Day

Posted by PRInstitution

Celebrate the birthday and works of Charles Darwin with fun activities around our “Bees! Diversity, Evolution and Conservation” special exhibit. Explore ancient and contemporary insects, pollinators, and plants. Make amber “slime” with bee erasers inside. Come take a selfie with Charles Darwin at our photo booth. Learn about the amazing Xanthopan moth’s pollination activity. Join us at 11 am for a special "Plants for Pollinators" event with our educator Katie to create you're own 'seed bomb'! We'll explore what types of plants can help out our pollinator neighbors here in upstate New York, and create our own craft to take home and plant in the Spring.

Come experience the wild world of evolution through our annual Darwin Days celebration of the life and ideas of Charles Darwin. Plants and their pollinators are partners in an elaborate love story that keeps our ecosystems—and us—healthy. Discover their complex saga of co-evolution.
