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.

The MVZ is currently being featured in the California Historical Society's exhibit Yosemite: A Storied Landscape, which celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Yosemite Grant. The exhibit, which runs from June 29, 2014 to January 25, 2015, includes a California Grizzly bear (Ursus arctos) skin from the MVZ Mammal collection, one of the last Grizzly bears found in Yosemite, and Joseph Grinnell's survey of the Yosemite transect as part of the Grinnell Resurvey Project.
