Explore cutting edge science topics, their latest developments, and their relevance to society through speaker presentations followed by conversations between speaker and audience.

Sponsored by the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences, and co-sponsored by the Museum of the Rockies and non-profit community service organization Hopa Mountain, the talks for the 2022 fall series will be presented in-person in the Museum of the Rockies’ Hager Auditorium on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm, followed by a question-and-answer period.

The talks are free to the public. Face masks are recommended but not required.
