Based on the Science Cafe model developed in Europe in the 1990s, ICL is pleased to present Science Pub as a fun way to bring educators, scientists, presenters, and the public together. Come on out, grab a beer, and hear about our wildlife program with Jeff Abrams, ICL’s new wildlife associate!
Idahoans care deeply about the native creatures that call the Gem State home. Historically, conservation efforts have focused almost exclusively on game animals. In recent years, however, science has told us that the threats facing the overwhelming majority of Idaho’s wildlife must be addressed with a much broader conservation management perspective, emphasizing diversity and resiliency. Going forward, habitat concerns and climate change will increasingly be at the center of comprehensive efforts to ensure security for all Idaho’s critters – from woodpeckers and Big-Eared bats to fishers and wolverines.
Please join ICL, as we host a conversation about our renewed emphasis on Idaho’s wildlife and emerging ideas about managing all species across the landscape to address the increasing challenges they face. No RSVP or scientific background is required. Just bring your curiosity, sense of humor, and appetite for drinks and knowledge!
