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 will 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. 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 Climate Data Center and USFS Southern Research Station in Asheville 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.
