Naturalist shares Galapagos findings

Event Date(s)

Begins: March 2, 2019 1:00 pm
Ends: March 2, 2019 2:00 pm

Charles Darwin first visited the Galapagos Islands in 1835, finding a rich variety of plants and animals. Years later, he consolidated his observations into his book “On the Origin of Species,” drastically and controversially altering the scientific view on the biological origins of life.

Local Master Naturalist Roger Fulton retraced Darwin’s route and shared the famed biologist’s findings when he visited the islands in 2012. He will provide photos and insight into his findings at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 2, at DeBary Hall Historic Site, 198 Sunrise Blvd, DeBary.  

Fulton is an outdoor writer and the author of more than 30 regional trail guidebooks.
