Want to know why the dinosaurs really went extinct, or why lichens live forever?

Every second Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $5.
Real Big Fish
Yes, yes, we all know about sharks, but you know what's huge and lurks in the Amazon River? Arapaima! These fishy friends can grow up to ten feet long and 400 pounds, and Field scientist Lesley De Souza is on a mission to protect them from extinction. We'll chat with Lesley about venturing to the most remote parts of the Amazon, working collaboratively with indigenous populations, and what it takes to protect some really big fish.
