Science Pub - Always the 4th Tuesday of the month!
On May 22nd, the Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council welcomes partners of the Watershed Action Teams for Education, Restoration and Stewardship (WATERS) program. In this talk, entitled Partnerships in Watershed Education, WATERS restoration site hosts, science teachers and students will present on the collaborative role each plays to the WATERS Program, a field-based, team-oriented advanced science program for middle school students in Lane County. The WATERS program expanded to South Lane County in 2016 providing area students the opportunity to connect with the landscape through experiential learning and prepare and inspire them for a future in environmental and scientific fields.
The CFWWC hosts a family-friendly monthly public meeting series called the Coast Fork Science Pub on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 5-7pm at the Axe & Fiddle, 657 E. Main Street in Cottage Grove. The event begins with informal socializing, trivia, and updates about the watershed and watershed council during the first hour. The Science Pub presentation begins at 6pm. CFWWC receives 10% of all sales from the evening between 5-7:30pm. The event is free to the public, with a $5 donation suggested. For further information, visit Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council on Facebook or www.coastfork.org.
