Presenting the 27th fabulous year of the Darwin Day Birthday Gala, Sacramento's coolest, most singular, most go-to event of science and humanity, brought to you by area science advocates, civic groups and nerds on too much coffee. An in-person event at the MOSAC Science Mujseum, marking "Chuck" Darwin's 215rd birthday. Open to all. But tickets required.

Darwin Day is a science-rush like no other, a celebration of scientific inquiry honoring of the life and work of the great Charles Darwin (b. 12 February 1809), sponsored worldwide by community and educational groups. It's not an AOF event, to be honest, but AOF helped found the local gala, and continues to support it and commend it to all our friends in the Sacramento community of reason. Because science! And what's science but reason in the trenches?

For background on this mind-growing event, visit https://darwinday.org/, the international website.

Speakers this year are the Drs. Brenna Henn and Tim Weaver:
