Thank You Cal Day Visitors, Contributors, and Volunteers!!

Another successful Cal Day at the MVZ! Our final visitor count for the museum was 2532!

Cal Day is the one day each year that our museum comes together to share our research and collections with the public resulting in one of the most popular events on campus.

We are extremely grateful for all the hard work of the MVZ faculty, staff, postdocs, graduate, and undergraduate students in generating exhibit content for the gallery. In addition, our Cal Day volunteers did a fantastic job engaging the public and ensuring that visitors were interacting with the displays and educational activities in a meaningful way.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to Cal Day 2018!
