Scientist Spotlight: Aiviq & Nanuq
5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28
Join us for scientific exploration of the important Northern mammals highlighted in the Aiviq & Nanuq: Sea Horse and Sea Bear of the Arctic exhibition. Hear from Todd Atwood, PhD, a USGS wildlife biologist whose research focuses on polar bear ecology and population dynamics. Examine artistic accounts of sea ice, polar bears and walruses in the gallery to inspire conversations about the current status and future outlook for these animals in a rapidly changing climate. These events will include a presentation of current science research by a local expert and a hands-on activity. $10, free for members.
