Events Calendar

Upcoming Events:

  • October 1, 2018: [Phenology Workshop] Garlic and Allium varieties specifically chosen to survive tough Tahoe winters and provide a hearty spring harvest. Topics include proper varietal selection, location in the garden or container, planting options, and methods for protecting the young plants. Come learn more and take home seedlings of your own at the Tahoe City Field Station Register here!
  • October 18, 2018: [Fall Lecture Series] Take a close look at the Evolution and Conservation of Salmon with UC Davis Associate Professor Mike Miller. Using new DNA analysis methods, researchers found that early migrating salmon populations depend on a single gene, and this genetic variant cannot be expected to easily re-evolve if lost. These new technologies for analyzing DNA may transform how imperiled species are considered and managed for conservation protection. These technologies can be applied to a wide range of species around the world. No host bar available at 5:30pm, presentation begins at 6:00 p.m. $5 donation collected at the door. Register here!
  • November 8, 2018: [Fall Lecture Series] Is your shampoo (and lots of other things you use every day) bad for outdoor air quality? UC Davis researcher Chris Cappa has found that everyday use of a wide-range of consumer products containing organic compounds (e.g. shampoo, perfume, paints) has a surprisingly large negative impact on air quality, even in car-centric urban cities such as L.A. We will discuss Aerosol Pollution; why and how this can be the case, even when we use so many of these products indoors. No host bar available at 5:30pm, presentation begins at 6:00 p.m. $5 donation collected at the door. Register here!
  • November 29, 2018: [Fall Lecture SeriesHow to Disagree with People about Climate Change. Understanding the structure of arguments about climate change patterns helps us engage those who disagree with us more productively. In this interactive presentation, Lynda Walsh, a rhetoric professor from the University of Nevada, Reno, will introduce some basic but powerful principles of argumentation theory that will prepare participants not only to understand and debate climate change more effectively but also to locate common ground with those who initially appear to be opponents on this issue. No host bar available at 5:30pm, presentation begins at 6:00 p.m. $5 donation collected at the door. Register here!
