Biodiversity Museum Day: Saturday, Feb. 16, 2019
UC Davis’ eighth annual Biodiversity Museum Day is happening on Saturday. It’s a free educational event, open to the public, and features the university’s natural-world museums and collections. Not only can you explore the collections, but you can talk with scientists and students about their work.
The 13 collections that can be visited (with links to the plant-focused collections):
9 a.m. to noon:
Arboretum and Public Garden
Bohart Museum of Entomology
California Raptor Center
Museum of Wildlife and Fish Biology
Phaff Yeast Culture Collection
Viticulture and Enology Culture Collection
The event will be held, rain or shine – many of the museums and collections are indoors. Dress for weather if you’re visiting outdoor sites. This is a great event for children to see natural wonders and to experience a university campus.
