Have you ever wondered which bird is making what sound in the overwhelming chorus of song we hear this time of year? Then join us as we delve into the exciting world of birding using our ears. During the first interactive session indoors learn some tips and tricks for listening to and identifying our feathered friends, then head out in the early morning for our second session to practice and discover. Both sessions are free, and all ages are welcome. You can also join the Mad Birders on a bonus birding by ear walk on Thursday, May 10th starting at 6:30am. For more information please contact email@example.com or 496-9728.
Along with Albert Einstein and Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking occupies a prominent place in the pantheon of celebrity scientists. Known for his seminal book, “A Brief History of Time”, Hawking also frequently appeared on the TV shows The Simpsons and Futurama, along with The Big Bang Theory and Star Trek. But as familiar as Stephen Hawking is in popular culture, few can actually describe what the scientist contributed to the fields of Physics and Cosmology. Join scientist Dan Zucker for a lay-person’s survey of those contributions. No mathematics or science background is required, merely an inquisitive mind and a desire to understand a bit more about the accomplishments of this extraordinary thinker.
