Science Lectures

Please join Point Reyes National Seashore staff for Science Lectures, 45 minute presentations on scientific research being performed at Point Reyes and elsewhere in the California. Science Lectures are sponsored by the Pacific Coast Science and Learning Center at Point Reyes National Seashore. They usually occur at noon on many Thursdays throughout the year and are normally held at the Red Barn Classroom at Point Reyes National Seashore's Headquarters. All are welcome and admission is free.

To get to the Red Barn Classroom, follow the Directions to get to the Bear Valley Visitor Center. After turning off of Bear Valley Road, proceed up the two-lane, paved driveway toward the Bear Valley Visitor Center. You will see the Red Barn on the left and after about 0.1 miles, there is a brown road sign pointing left to the Red Barn Classroom. Turn left on to the gravel driveway and proceed across the bridge to the parking lot. The Red Barn Classroom is on the end closest to this parking lot.

There are no upcoming Science Lectures scheduled at this time.


Some of our Brown Bag Lectures from last year included:

 
A historic dairy ranch composed of many white-painted buildings surrounded by green grass and a few trees.

Date: Monday, July 30, 2018
Title: "La Vida Ranchero"
Presenter: Brandon Barragan, Interpretation Intern from the Latino Heritage Internship Program
Summary: The first Rancheros to came to the Point Reyes Peninsula over 150 years ago. Many of them are now gone and little of their history remains. Come join a Brown Bag Social on the history of the Point Reyes Rancheros. This program will be seminar style; visitors are encouraged to share their thoughts, and experiences as we dive into the rich history and culture of Rancheros. Everyone is welcome and we hope to see you all there for this interactive program where we celebrate the importance of diversity in our National Parks.
