Winter Lecture - Charles Darwin: Journey of Discovery
Chicago actor R.J. Lindsey will portray English naturalist, geologist and biologist Charles Darwin. Learn about Darwin’s five year around the world trip aboard the HMS Beagle and the many natural wonders that he uncovered along the way that led to the development of his theory of evolution. His book “On the Origin of the Species” published in 1859 transformed the way that we understand the natural world with ideas that, in his day, were nothing short of revolutionary. Darwin’s observations first gave us insight into the fantastic diversity of life on Earth and its origins, including our own species.
