- January 19, 2017: [Evening Lecture] The Tahoe Natural Year with Dr. Will Richardson from the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science. Did you know that throughout the calendar year, our planet’s orbit causes the shifting weather patterns, the movements and migrations of animals, the emergence and disappearance of various plants and wildlife, and a host of other natural history phenomena? Learn about a wide variety of these natural history topics, track the ebb and flow of the Sierra’s seasons, and catch a sneakpeak at some of the wildlife you may want to watch for in the coming year. No-host happy hour at 5:30 and public presentation at 6 p.m. at the UC Davis Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences in Incline Village, NV. Register for this event here!
- February 2, 2017: [Evening Lecture] Aggravated Divisions: Political Polarization and Policymaking after the 2016 Election with Dr. Christopher Hare from the UC Davis Department of Political Science. What has 2016 taught us about polarization in American politics? Just how divided are we, and what are the nature of those divides? Political science research indicates that a diverse set of conflicts—differences in issue attitudes, policy priorities, race and ethnicity, core values and beliefs, and culture/lifestyle—continue to overlap on one another. This has produced polarized voting patterns, partisan behaviors, and increasing distrust and dislike of those in rival ideological and partisan camps. No-host happy hour at 5:30 and public presentation at 6 p.m. at the UC Davis Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences in Incline Village, NV. Register for this event here!
- February 9, 2017: [Evening Lecture] Climate change and lake temperature in the Sierra Nevada: There's no business like snow business, with Dr. Steve Sadro from the Department of Environmental Science and Policy at UC Davis. Water temperature regulates a broad range of fundamental ecosystem processes in lakes. While climate can be an important factor controlling lake temperatures, in many lakes, water temperatures are responding differently than air temperatures. Through multiple decades of climate and water temperature data from a high-elevation catchment in the southern Sierra Nevada we are able to illustrate the magnitude of warming taking place and demonstrate the role of winter snow-pack in regulating lake temperatures. No-host happy hour at 5:30 and public presentation at 6 p.m. at the UC Davis Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences in Incline Village, NV. Register for this event here!
- March 13-17, 2017: [Special Event] The 12th Annual North Tahoe Science Expo.
- April 6, 2017: [Evening Lecture] Recovering the Endangered Mountain Yellow-legged Frog in the Sierra Nevada, with Dr. Roland Knapp, Sierra Nevada Aquatic Research Laboratory University of California, Santa Barbara. Imagine a world with no frogs. No longer would you hear frog melodies in the evening, algae would flourish, and entire ecosystems could change dramatically. This is a possibility in the Sierra Nevada because 90 percent of the Mountain yellow-legged frogs have been disappearing due to an amphibian pathogen and loss of habitat from fish introductions in our lakes. An ambitious and promising effort is underway to recover these frogs, and this approach may be applied to conserving other threatened amphibians globally. No-host happy hour at 5:30 and public presentation at 6 p.m. at the UC Davis Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences in Incline Village, NV. Register for this event here!
