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.

Beautiful new website for Hastings Natural History ReservePhoto

Fresh for the new year, the Hastings Natural History Reserve's website has a new look and new content.
From Vince Voegeli, Resident Director: "If you've not visited in a while, please have a look and let us know what you think of the new website. Hopefully you'll find it easier to navigate and find what you need to know! Thanks go out to Dana Holdt for the design and the majority of the work getting this up and running, as well as everyone else who contributed to the final product!"
