CANCELLED: 18th Annual Darwin Day at VCU!

UPDATE: THIS EVENT CANCELLED:
******
The snowstorm that tore across the Northeast cancelled Dr.  Graur’s connecting flights from Houston.  While they found another connecting flight option, that too did not make it.

He was very sad not to be able to share his work with us and promised to come another time.

Thank you everyone who helped during the planning process and it’s such a shame that the weather interfered on this day of celebrating Darwin!

Cheers,

GOBS

We hope to see you there!
Thank you,
