Science Pub Ketchum: Light Pollution

Curious about light pollution? Stop by and quench your thirst for knowledge at this month’s Ketchum Science Pub on light pollution.

Join ICL staff members Dani Mazzotta and Betsy Mizell and learn about excessive use of artificial light—known as light pollution—and its serious environmental consequences for humans, wildlife and our climate. You will also have the opportunity to lean about the collaborative effort taking place in the Wood River Valley and Stanley Basin to create the Central Idaho Dark Sky Reserve.

Based on the Science Cafe model developed in Europe in the 1990s, ICL and the Sawtooth Brewery are 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 join in on the informal discussions around scientific topics and environmental issues.

Enjoy a great glass of locally crafted beer while you learn about light pollution. No RSVP or scientific background is required. Just bring your curiosity, sense of humor, and appetite for drinks and knowledge!
