7:30 pm

We’ve long known that beer and conversation go together.

We hope you’ll join us for Science on Tap, a monthly science cafe organized by the KU Natural History Museum and hosted here at the Free State Brewery.

Here’s how it works:  A moderator introduces a science or technology topic.  After a short break for food or drink, the moderator encourages the crowd to ask questions about the subject and interact. Come early for dinner, eat and drink during the event, or join us just for the conversation. The program will begin at 7:30.

Surveying the Birdlife of Guyana

Moderator - Mark Robbins, collection manager, KU ornithology

 

What birds are found in some of the world’s most difficult places to access? KU ornithologist Mark Robbins will share what it was like to document birdlife on a remote tabletop mountain in Guyana that is one of the wettest places on the planet, and what discoveries he and colleagues from the Smithsonian made during the expedition.
