Meeting of the Minds
Meeting of the Minds is a lecture series created in 2018 to encourage local speakers to talk about topics of interest. Lectures have ranged from gamma ray astrophysics (Kenneth Gibbs, Ph.D.), to toxic plankton monitoring (Lynnette Wood, Ph.D.), to piebaldism in local deer populations (Joe Springer), and everything in between. We like to think there is something for everyone!
Meeting of the Minds lectures are at 1:00pm on the third Wednesday of the month, from September to May, with an occasional “extra” lecture thrown in for good measure. Keep a look out on our website and local media outlets announcing each presentation and how to attend.

Below are recordings of some of the Meeting of the Minds 2020-2021 series by Zoom. The Meeting of the Minds presentations from this series were moved from in-person to Zoom due to having to cancel all in-person events because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the video of Jenny DeGroot’s presentation was compromised. However, the audio recording was restored. Please enjoy.
