Science Unwrapped - 'Explore to Conserve: A Russian Kayaking Adventure'

Friday, Feb 01 - 7:00PM to 8:30PM

Inquiring minds of all ages are invited to "ride along" on a kayaking adventure with USU physicist and wildlife biologist Jeff Hazboun. Hazboun recounts highlights of his National Geographic-sponsored expedition into Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula to explore pristine, yet imperiled, salmon habitat. Hear stories of navigating waterfalls, viewing Kamchatka's many bears and marveling at Kamchatka's spectacular volcanoes. Hands-on learning activities following the talk, including an exhibit by USU Engineering's student Concrete Canoe competition team, an exhibit by the USU Museum of Anthropology about migration of ancient peoples by kayak and canoe; flotation exhibits by the USU Physics Department; GIS demonstrations of stream mapping by the USU Department of Watershed Sciences; a volcano exhibit by the USU Department of Geology and more.
