Kirk Johnson, PhD, vice president of research and collections; filmmaker Randy Olson, PhD; and the indelible Muffy Moose, Olson's mom.
Come celebrate Charles Darwin’s birthday and enjoy an encore performance of Flock of Dodos: The Evolution-Intelligent Design Circus. Olson, an evolutionary biologist-turned-filmmaker, has created a film that explores basic aspects of evolution and uses the extinct dodo as a metaphor for what happens to those unable to change with their environment. After the screening, Olson and Johnson will answer your questions about the film and the volatile issues it raises. You will also meet one of the film’s most memorable personalities, Muffy Moose, aka the filmmaker’s mother, Muffy Olson.
