Science Café comes to Pinedale

© 2017-Pinedale Roundup

PINEDALE – The Pinedale Library and Sublette BOCES have collaborated with the University of Wyoming to bring science talks to Pinedale. The effort kicks off on Friday, April 28, at 6 p.m. in the Lovatt Room. BOCES will provide a free, light meal and the library will provide free beverages.

Each talk will be about 15 minutes in length and followed by questions from the audience. Dr. Brian Barber, from UW’s Biodiversity Institute, will emcee the talks. The event should encourage lively discussions that tap the interests of people attending.

  • Sarah Daniels, a recent grad student at UW, will present “Raccoon Problem Solving.”
  • PhD student Bryan Maitland will present his research on the effects of stream culverts on trout. His talk is entitled, “Stream Culverts and Fish: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.”
  • Finally, there will be a talk by Prof. Anna Chalfoun that should interest area bird-watchers. Dr. Chalfoun’s talk is entitled, “Is it for the Birds?”

Everyone is invited to attend. If the talks are successful at drawing participants, this will be the first in a long series of “Science Café” events hosted by the Sublette County Library, Sublette BOCES and the University of Wyoming.
