It has been 150 years since the publication of Darwin’s On the Origin of Species, and 200 years since his birth (February 12). To celebrate, there will be a number of exciting events throughout the year.

Check out the Vancouver Evolution Festival web site for local events, including who’s speaking at the free public lecture series Darwin and You.

If you want to go further afield, the Darwin Day Celebration web site lists events in over 20 countries.

Publishers have also joined in with the following special publications commemorating Darwin.

Happy Birthday Darwin!
