Just got this, from NCSE and others …
Dear Sacramento-area friends of NCSE,
I thought that you might like to know that Matthew J. James of Sonoma
State University will be speaking on "Collecting Evolution: The
1905-06 Galápagos Expedition that Vindicated Charles Darwin" at
Sacramento’s Darwin Day, taking place from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. on
February 13 in the John Smith Hall in the La Sierra Community Center,
5325 Engle Road in Carmichael.
James "will entertain and inform us about the 1905-06 scientific
collecting expedition to the Galápagos Islands conducted by the
California Academy of Sciences. His presentation will include the
history of the expedition’s two-masted schooner Academy (ex-Earnest),
built in 1875 for the U.S. Coast Survey." There will also be
refreshments, entertainment, and displays.
Tickets are $10.00 in advance (before February 6, 2016), $15.00 at the
door; tickets for students with ID are $10.00. For further
