In 2023, eleven biological collections worked together for a free, in-person UC Davis Biodiversity Museum Day on Saturday, February 18, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. On this day, the public was invited to visit the collections, where they are housed, all across the UC Davis campus. Each collection had its own open hours based on their specific staffing, so the schedule was not be the same for all the collections.
Traditionally UC Davis Biodiversity Museum Day is a free, educational event for the community where visitors get to connect with UC Davis scientists from undergraduate students to staff to emeritus professors. In 2021, we pivoted to a month-long, virtual program. In 2022, also because of COVID regulations, we held the event in the UC Davis Conference Center as an "expo." This year, we continued to maintain that spirit and were excited to return the event to our home departments. Stay tuned for our 2024 plans!
