Darwin b-day field trip

In honor of Darwin’s birthday, I took my evolution students to a hidden gem in town, the Karpeles Manuscript Museum. This month, they are featuring original documents from Darwin as well as letters to him about evolution (e.g., one from his grandfather Erasmus and one from Alfred Russel Wallace). It was SO cool and my students had a great time! It is in an old building with lots of history and is absolutely worth a visit.
