At The Bishop


On the second Wednesday of each month from 7 to 9 pm, we transform the Bishop Planetarium into a forum for discussions at think + drink (science), a place where you can grab a beer or a glass of wine (or a soft drink) and learn about cutting-edge science in a relaxed, informal setting. Typically our “expert du jour” gives a short presentation on the topic of the month, and then opens the floor for questions and discussion.

Sept. 12: The Art & Science of Animal Training
Matt Edmonds grew up in Kansas but fell in love with Florida as a child while visiting his grandparents on Clearwater Beach. The warm weather, ocean, and exotic animals fueled his infatuation. An opportunity at Lowry Park Zoo brought Matt to Florida full time. He has been a professional animal trainer since 1994 and has trained a wide variety of animals, from parrots, hawks, eagles and falcons to rats, squirrels, servals, porcupines, rhino, elephants and more! Learn how his passion for nature and understanding of the behavior of animals of all shapes and sizes helps to educate and inspire others.
