CalDay at the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology
Every year on Cal Day, the MVZ displays some of its more interesting specimens, provide hands-on experiences with animals like snakes, frogs, lizards, tuco-tucos, rabbits, salamanders and hedgehogs, and at the same time teaches the public something about the environment and animal biology.
This is the only opportunity most people get to see the insides of one of North America's largest collections of mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles. The MVZ has no public exhibits, but we make an effort to show off some of our 600,000 plus specimens on U.C. Berkeley's annual open house.
Most years we get well over 1,000 visitors. If you are the lucky 1,000th visitor, you might walk away with a free MVZ t-shirt!
CalDay is usually in mid-late April (usually Homecoming Week).
