To Catch an Eagle
with Frank Hein, Museum Exhibits Director
Monday, July 13, 2015
6:30-8:00 PM

Join us for a light hearted and informative journey into the natural world through the eyes of a field biologist.  Frank J. Hein serves as the Director of Exhibits at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, where his extensive background in wildlife ecology is put to good use.  Frank will share a bit about what it is like to live in the field, trap and track eagles and generally be outclassed by animals that he has been paid to outsmart. 





The Life Aquarist with Tyler Haven and Tommy Wilson
Monday, August 10, 2015
6:30-8:00 PM

With a plan to educate the public about undersea life, renowned aquarists Tyler Haven and Tommy Wilson rally a crew that includes a cunning octopus, hypnotic jellyfish, and a creature that may or may not be a fish.  Over a pint they will answer your burning questions, from animal husbandry, to pipes, and pumps, and specimen collection - painting a vivid picture of a day in the life of a Sea Center aquarist.
