Science Magazine promotes Darwin150.com and Darwin Facebook Group!

Science Magazine at ScienceMag.org just did a piece on the origins of the Darwin Facebook Group and The Darwin 150 Project on their blog!

The headline is Join Darwin on Facebook (can't get better than that!) and includes this great quote from esteemed scientist, Sean Carroll:

"This series is unique in both the medium and the audience," says evolutionary biologist and author Sean Carroll of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, who has been active in Darwin celebrations across the globe and is involved in making a TV documentary on evolution. "It will be interesting to see its reach and the make-up of the audience."

Professor Carroll is headlining the third free lecture in our upcoming series and is a wonderful speaker--don't miss him! Register here to attend live or via webcast or phone.
