Each year, the Essig Museum celebrates Darwin’s birthday (February 12th) with special behind-the-scenes tours of our collection in the Valley Life Sciences Building. See specimens from the Galapagos such as finches, rodents, a marine iguana, and tortoise shell; herbarium specimens, live orchids and insectivorous plants; and learn how Darwin and other naturalists provided the foundation for our understanding of how evolution works in the natural world.
