On February 13, 2009, the EWU Biology Department celebrated Darwin Day for the first time. This annual observance of the anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth recognizes his contribution to the theory of natural selection and evolution. Our festivities featured a presentation on Darwin and evolution by Washington State University associate professor of entomology, Carol Anelli ... followed by a cake decorating contest in which participants created a cake reflecting some aspect of Darwin or evolution. For complete details on our innaugural celebration of Darwin's 200th birthday, go to the Winter 2009 Biology News.
