Darwin Days 2017: Exploring Human Evolution

An annual commemoration of the birthday and ideas of Charles Darwin (1809-1882)

February 12 - 18

What does it mean to be human? How did humans evolve in the past, and how are we evolving now? When and where did major points in our evolution happen, and why is it important?

Learn the answers to all of these questions and more with the Paleontological Research Institution and Tompkins County Public Library through Darwin Days 2017: Exploring Human Evolution.

Featuring family-friendly activities, film screenings, guest speakers and more, join us for our annual celebration of the life and ideas of Charles Darwin.

Presented as part of Ithaca Explores Human Origins: A Three-Month Exploration of What It Means To Be Human.
