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).

May 13: Impacts, Recovery, and Ongoing Stressors in the Apalachicola River, Florida with Dr. Joann Mossa, University of Florida

The Apalachicola River has experienced impacts associated with dredging for navigation and droughts exacerbated by upstream water consumption. We review these impacts and discuss how the river is recovering following the end of dredging, facilitated by its conservation corridor.
