If you are excited by science – whether or not you are a science professional – and you live in the Western North Carolina area, then the Asheville Science Tavern is a great meetup for you. We are inspired by other science socials such as Cafe Scientifique, Atlanta Science Tavern (another Meetup), and Thirst DC.

We also offer science outings such as hikes, river trips, and nighttime observations, science chats among ourselves, science pot lucks, science trips (to NC Museum of Natural Sciences, DC museums, etc.), citizen science activities, art-science activities, and more. 

In WNC we live in an area of tremendous biological and geological richness, with some dark skies for observing astronomy, and with some great science institutions (National Centers for Environmental Information and USFS Southern Research Station for example), AND with lots of smart, curious explorers like yourselves -- so we hope you will join us in learning more about the wonderful place we live.
