From the Vault: SCONC Celebrates Darwin's 200th Birthday

From 20 November 2009:
In what was a long overdue celebration, the Science Communicators of North Carolina headed to the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NASCent) to celebrate the birthday (and publication of The Origin of Species) of Charles Darwin.
SCONC was treated to a trio of fascinating presentations on ice age sabertooth cats, nifty little treeshrews (closely related to primates), and ancient ferns. NASCent prepared an assortment of tasty goodies and we appreciate their hospitality.
As I find them, I’ll link to other descriptions of the night as I was concentrating on the visuals. Enjoy the photos.
