Science at Sunset


Location: Notre Dame Linked Experimental Ecosystem Facility

Join the Environmental Change Initiative on Thursday, June 13, 2019 for Science at Sunset.

Phil Stepanian will present a lecture titled, Cloudy with a chance of migration: Using weather radar to track the incredible flights of birds, bats, and bugs.

Our atmosphere is the largest expanse of wildlife habitat on Earth, but monitoring the flying animals that call the sky their home is still a major challenge. Using our continental radar network, Phil Stepanian will take you on a guided tour around the national airspace, giving a bird’s-eye view of the wildlife activity far above our heads. Come explore the weather that drives this dynamic habitat, and the lofty lives of birds, bats, and bugs!

To register, call SJCP at 574-654-3155.

ND-LEEF will provide snacks for the free program and attendees are welcome to bring their own beverages, including beer and wine. Other alcoholic drinks and glass containers are prohibited; all beverages must be brought in plastic or metal containers. Although the County Parks and ND-LEEF partner on many science-related programs, the “Science at Sunset” series is unique in that it is designed for adults.
