The Science of Love and Bonding and Its Implications for Treating Autism

This event is the Geoffrey Bourne Lecture of Zoo Atlanta.

There is no charge to attend, but space is limited and reservations are required.
Call [masked] to make a reservation. Your RSVP here does not constitute a reservation.

You can find directions to Zoo Atlanta here.

For those interested, there is a nice bistro, Dakota Blue, located nearby at 454 Cherokee Avenue where we can gather after the lecture.

    This might be a little late, but I really enjoyed the lecture. Very informative, I'm very glad I was informed of it by way of this forum.

    I apologize for any problems that people had getting a response to their reservation requests. I learned last night that the person at Zoo Atlanta who was handling RSVPs had a family emergency to tend to, so that may have account for part of the difficulty.

    I have let organizations, like Zoo Atlanta, know that telephone RSVPs no longer cut it in the Internet age. Some of these institutions are pretty set in their ways, though. I have an email contact at the Zoo now, so I should be able to facilitate things better next time around.

    I left a message about attending, but did not hear back. Any ideas?? just show up??

      Connie - I'm not sure what to suggest. Unlike most of our third-party meetups, I don't have any other way to get through to the organizers than to call the same number that everybody else is using. My guess is that they will welcome you if there are free seats, but that they may turn you away if the event is sold out. Sorry that I can't be of more help. - Marc

      Since the speaker is with Emory, there is a very good chance that the talk will be repeated on campus.

    I keep hoping to make a weekday event; My work schedule plus the downtown commute is making it difficult for me to get there.

    Has anyone had difficulty making a phone reservation? I've left a couple messages but can't reach an actual person, just an actual person's voice mail.

      I left a message for Amy on Sunday & she got back to me Monday.

      She got through. I'm betting they'll shift to email reservations next time.

    The Conservation Action Resource Center (ARC) is located at the far end of the parking lot adjacent to Zoo Atlanta. You enter from the parking lot, *not* from the main entrance to Zoo Atlanta.

      General FYI: There are two parking lots for the Zoo, one off Boulevard and one off Cherokee Ave SE. The ARC entrance is at the Cherokee lot.

    I won't be able to attend Dakota Blue afterwards but am really looking forward to the lecture! His research is very interesting.
