Nat Talk: The State of Biodiversity

Feb 20, 2018

We have all heard of the State of the Union, State of the State, and State of the City addresses, but what about the state of nature and the environment around us? The State of Biodiversity will feature Dr. Michael Soulé, the father of modern conservation biology, talking about “Subversive Ecology.” Dr. Soulé will be accompanied by a panel who will discuss emerging threats to biodiversity, conservation uses of the latest genetic tools, conservation success stories, and landscape-level impacts on diversity like climate change and fragmentation. Join The Nat for this important community dialogue.

Greg Proops Live Proopcast

Mar 22, 2018

It's just Proops and you. There's no fan fare. Proops takes center stage at small table and chair setup with a single microphone. Then he's off. An hour of great conversation that flies by at a break neck clip. He crams the feeling of a great two-way conversation into the lecture-style format of a one-way conversation.

Part professorial, part crazed comedian, Proops forms the show around his talent and passions. The show flows like a love letter to tangents. The Proopcast has been to Australia, New Zealand, Montreal, London, Edinburgh, Austin, Cleveland, San Francisco and off the coast of St. Martin in the Caribbean all in one year. Now you must fall.

Be there and experience joy for once in your life.
