Aliens in our Kelp Forests! The mysterious life of CA Moray Eel
Date: 08/02/2018 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Ages: Teens and Adults Admission Fees: Free

SCPL is partnering with the Children's Museum of Discovery (MOD), UCSC and The Natural History Museum to present a science series for adults and teens. Meetings will be held on the 1st Thursday every month at 6:30pm at the Downtown Library.

Katherine Dale and Dr Rita Mehta will present current research into the life history of the California Moray Eel from the Catalina Islands.

Katherine is a second-year PhD student in the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology Department at UC Santa Cruz. She received her bachelor's degree from the University of Miami in 2015. Katherine is interested in the early life history of fishes, especially what environmental or biological factors influence how little baby fish disperse from their point of hatching to the juvenile locations. She is especially passionate about diadromous species such as salmon, eels, and sturgeon which spend part of their lives in both freshwater and saltwater.

Dr. Mehta is an associate professor in the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology Department at UC Santa Cruz. Her research seeks to understand morphological, physiological, and behavioral evolution. She has a special interest in studying the mechanisms guiding diversification in vertebrate clades whose members have evolved an elongate and limb-reduced (or complete loss) body plan such as snakes, anguilliform fishes, and other eel-like vertebrates. She is also interested in the evolution of morphological and behavioral innovations in organismal design.

Ages: Adults Admission Fees: Free

(0 A July 2018) Library_MixedUse.jpgWe invite you to attend the City's Project Open House to learn more about the purposed Library Mixed-Use Project. This project will serve as a catalyst for important downtown improvements led by:
•A new modern library with the space, technology, and amenities that residents have requested
•Consolidation of surface parking lots into one structure, enabling better uses for the lots, including housing
•A permanent, dedicated home for the Downtown Farmers' Market on Front Street
•Additional office, retail, and affordable housing uses in our downtown

Our Downtown is always changing. Numerous recent improvements and positive trends are changing Downtown Santa Cruz for the better. The purposed Downtown Library Mixed-Use project would build on the trend of increasing vitality in the downtown area. Central to the project is a focus on smart growth planning principles that are aligned with the City's commitment to addressing climate change.

We invite you to learn more at this project open house on August 6th 5-7pm at the Downtown Library 2nd Floor Community Room
