Darwin Day

Darwin Day Poster 2021

Charles Robert Darwin, (born February 12, 1809, Shrewsbury,  Shropshire , England—died April 19, 1882, Downe, Kent), English naturalist whose  scientific theory  of  evolution  by  natural selection  became the foundation of modern evolutionary studies. An  affable  country gentleman, Darwin at first shocked religious Victorian society by suggesting that animals and humans shared a common ancestry. However, his nonreligious  biology  appealed to the rising class of professional scientists, and by the time of his death evolutionary imagery had spread through all of  science , literature, and politics. Darwin, himself an  agnostic , was accorded the ultimate British  accolade  of burial in  Westminster Abbey , London.

 Numerous events have been organized around the world to celebrate his contributions to humanity, science and rational thought.The Department of Biology at UVU has regularly held a Darwin Day Celebration since 2009. Because of the current COVID pandemic, this year our activities will be held virtually. We are fortunate to have an upcoming evolutionary biologist present our talk this year.
