“When snow falls, nature listens.” Antoinette van Kleffe may have been speaking more literally than figuratively when she penned this quote. 

At this Science Distilled, DRI researchers Kelly Gleason and Alison Murray will share perspectives from the ecosystem on the glistening white stuff. You’ll hear stories of how snow impacts everything from forest fires, to microbial life, and even citizen scientists involved in snow research!

Science Distilled, a new lecture series created by Desert Research Institute (DRI) and The Discovery, makes cutting- edge science approachable through presentations on current and curious topics held at hip locations in a social atmosphere.

Time: Doors open at 7:00pm, presentation begins at 7:30pm

Ages: 18+

Admission: $10 Discovery Members; $15 Non-members (Students aged 18+ may purchase tickets at the member price).
