Science Pub – Eye of Newt and Skin of Toad: Tales of Toxicity from Oregon Amphibians and Reptiles

October 23 • 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Eye of Newt and Skin of Toad: Toxic Tales from Oregon Amphibians and Reptiles presented by Tom Titus, University of Oregon research associate, herpetologist and author will be the focus of the October 2018 Science Pub. Do poisonous amphibians and reptiles spook you? Mr. Titus explores the fascinating facts on poisonous amphibians and reptiles of the Willamette Valley and other parts of Oregon. For over two decades Mr. Titus has taught the popular University of Oregon course “Amphibians and Reptiles of Oregon.” After all these years he still thinks salamanders are the coolest animals walking the planet.

The CFWWC hosts a family-friendly monthly public meeting series called the Coast Fork Science Pub on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 5-7pm at the Axe & Fiddle, 657 E. Main Street in Cottage Grove. The event begins with informal socializing, trivia, and updates about the watershed and watershed council during the first hour. The Science Pub presentation begins at 6pm. CFWWC receives 10% of all sales from the evening between 5-7:30pm. The event is free to the public, with a $5 donation suggested. For further information, visit Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council on Facebook or www.coastfork.org.
