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.
- $5 for eligible members of the Discovery Society; $8 for all others.
- Reservations strongly encouraged.

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).
Oct. 9: Saving Madagascar’s Lemurs
Dr. Erik Patel, Conservation and Research Director at the Lemur Conservation Foundation in Myakka City, studies one of the most critically endangered primates in the world — the silky sifaka lemur, in Marojejy National Park, one of the places that is a focus of LCF’s on-the-ground work in Madagascar. His fieldwork has garnered considerable media attention, including several televised feature films and newspaper and magazine coverage, including Smithsonian magazine.
