Syrian Refugees: Escaping the Horrors of War, Coping with World Apathy

Founders Hall
Over five million Syrians have fled their country seeking safety and freedom, away from the horrors of the civil war.  As the world copes with the largest humanitarian crisis of our lifetime, the US has played a small part in the efforts to relocate and resettle refugees. Now, there is fear that even this meager involvement will stop, leaving one of our world's most vulnerable populations in limbo indefinitely. 

Come learn about the situation, and what you can do to help!

Science on Tap!

Blondie's Food & Drink
"Crown Ecology in Tall Sitka Spruce Trees"

by Dr. Lucy Kerhoulas
HSU Department of Forestry & Wildland Resources

I will discuss some of the physiological complications associated with being a tall tree and some of the surprising ways that using crown water sources high above the forest floor can minimize these complications. I will also describe some of the epiphytic communities that occupy these old-growth canopies. Furthermore, although epiphytes and their host trees epitomize commensalism, the historical view of this relationship has ranged from semi-parasitic to mutualistic. It is well documented that canopy epiphytes can increase nutrient availability to host trees and the ecosystem as a whole, but there is relatively little known about how these interspecific interactions influence host tree physiology. I will discuss some of our recent findings on the potential influences of epiphytes and crown water sources on host tree water status and physiology in tall (> 85 m) Sitka spruce trees at the Redwood Experimental Forest, Del Norte County.

Free and all ages welcome!
Delicious food and drink available for purchase!
