Lecture Series

SNARL Seminar Series:

Each spring SNARL offers 6-8 evening lectures by scientists conducting research in the region. The talks are targeted toward the layperson, are free and open to the public. Lectures are not suited to young children. We ask that you please be on time as latecomers are a disruption to both the speaker and our guests.

The Spring 2016 Lecture Series will take place at the new Page Center at SNARL, 1016 Mount Morrison Road. If arriving from Mammoth Lakes, head south on 395 approximately 500 feet past the Green Church and make a right hand turn. From Bishop, make a left hand turn at the top of the hill past Crowley Lake. If you've reached the Green Church, you've gone too far and must make a U-turn. 

Lectures will start at 7 PM Tuesday nights starting April 19 and running through May 31. Lectures last approximately one hour.  For more information contact Annie Barrett, anne.barrett@ucsb.edu; 805-893-5655.  Click to access the 2017 lecture schedule.
