The Public Engagement Committee organizes science outreach for the EGSA at UC Davis Picnic Day, a campus-wide open house in May. Now in its 106th year, Picnic Day attracts thousands of visitors of all ages to the EGSA’s exhibit in the Museum of Fish and Wildlife Biology. The exhibit features research from GGE students and is staffed by GGE students, providing a valuable opportunity for science communication with a broad audience. The exhibit also showcases research equipment, field gear, and Museum of Fish and Wildlife specimens that represent species studied by GGE students.
