Biodiversity Museum Day began in 2012 with only three participating collections serving about 500 visitors. In 2020 there were 13 participating collections and over 4,000 visitors. All this growth has occurred with a shoe-string budget. We sincerely thank our departments and the Chancellor for supporting our efforts all these years through internal UC Davis funding. However, for us to continue providing a unique and valuable experience, we need to take a different path. That is why support from friends, attendees, small businesses, and local organizations is extremely important. With your help we can expand this free, family friendly, educational event.
