At The Bishop


Our monthly think + drink / science program transforms The Planetarium into a forum of discussion where you can grab a beer, glass of wine or a soft drink and learn about science in a relaxed, informal setting. The day’s expert gives a short presentation then opens the floor for questions and discussion.

• 7 p.m. on the second Wednesday of most months.
• $5 for members of the Discovery Society; $8 for all others.
• Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis; please arrive promptly. Pre-purchased program seats will be held until 5 minutes prior to program start time ONLY, at which time they may be released for re-sale (no refunds or exchanges will be given after the start of the program).

Feb. 12: Manatee Rehabilitation – SOLD OUT

Virginia Edmonds, Director of Animal Care at The Bishop, joined the Museum in November 2017 from Zoo Tampa at Lowry Park. She has worked with manatees for more than 25 years, and her passion for animal care is as deep as her expertise. Learn firsthand about manatee rehabilitation efforts at The Bishop, as well as our cooperative role with the Manatee Rescue & Rehabilitation Partnership, why it’s important, and how its members share the commitment to help wild manatees.
