Cal Day

The MVZ holds an annual open house in conjunction with UC Berkeley's Cal Day, with special displays that highlight the collections and diversity of vertebrates. Visitors get a chance to see and handle a variety of live animals, including snakes, and to chat with faculty, staff, and students about research or classes on biology and natural history at UC Berkeley. This is the only day of the year that the Museum is open to the public. Click here for recent Cal Day pictures from the MVZ.

Rosemary and Peter Grant visit the MVZ!

The Museum of Vertebrate Zoology was very excited to host Drs. Rosemary and Peter Grant this past week on September 30 and October 1, 2015. The Grants were the MVZ graduate student invited speakers and they were very generous with their time giving two seminar presentations for our community at both the MVZ Lunch Seminar on Wednesday and the IB seminar on Thursday.
