Have Dinner with a Scientist

Oct 01, 2019 03:29PM
Researchers are so busy in the lab, out in the field, or with their heads buried in books that sharing their work with non-researchers may rarely happen—unless they’re scientists at the Hopland Research and Extension Center (HREC) in Hopland. Then there is an entire event, the Harvest Celebration, dedicated to sharing their work. Inquiring minds who attend the event can learn about HREC’s use of drones for post-fire research, see how a forest is recovering after a fire, and learn about wildlife research, all alongside the professionals who are involved in these projects. Besides the heady stuff, the event will also have a band, a live auction, and a lamb farm-to-table luncheon. The celebration happens on November 3, 10 a.m.–3 p.m. Tickets are $70, or $15 for children younger than 16, and must be purchased by October 27. Register at
