You are invited to join in the conversation at the next Tapping into Science with Dr. Jesse Kennedy, Chief of Cultural Resources at North Cascades National Park, who will profile pioneer life as captured in the writings of Lucinda Davis.
Tapping into Science is a monthly forum created by North Cascades National Park and Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen to facilitate conversation about park research. It is just one of many “science cafes” (http://www.sciencecafes.org/find.html) established across the United States, Canada, and Europe to engage the public in scientific activities.
The preservation of our national parks requires good research. Further, it requires that this research is shared with both scientists and non-scientists. Thus, the goal of Tapping into Science is to help people learn more about their national parks and encourage further inquiry. This series explores, in an informal way, a sampling of the vast array of current research that takes place in our national parks – which, as protected areas, are natural laboratories for study.
Conversations are held at the Chuckanut Brewery & Kitchen on the last Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. Directions are available at http://www.chuckanutbreweryandkitchen.com.
