Feb. 12, the 200th birthday anniversary of evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin


My brother-in-law sent this to me. He lives with my sister and niece in England, very close to Darwin’s birth place:

Darwin was born in Shrewsbury the county town of Shropshire (the county where we live) about 20 miles from Bridgnorth. Here’s a great site about his Shrewsbury roots. The county is very proud of their notable son. There is a large statue of Darwin outside Shrewsbury Library and one at the top of the grand staircase in the Natural History Museum in London. Charlotte had her picture taken next to this statue as she was also born in Shrewsbury (all be it in the hospital!)

 

 

 

 

 

Here is sketch your readers might enjoy…any excuse to do a drawing!

(And, here’s more information on Darwin events and celebrations scheduled to take place this month as well as discussions on why this hot topic is important albeit controversial.)
