The Informed by Nature table will be right in front--in the hallway before the dinosaur skeleton when you walk in. Look for our logo. Some of us will leave the table to attend the talk, so check in at 5:45 if you want to sit together. Also, if you miss us at 5:45--we will be there all night, so you can stop by and say hi any time!

Unfortunately it's not free ($9)--HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to buy tickets ahead of time and retrieve them at will call that night.

First Friday info (from the Nat Hist Museum site):

Tour (5:30 pm): Living On The Edge: Coping With Earthquakes In California Interactive Presentations with Lindsey T. Groves, Collections Manager of Malacology and Alyssa Morgan, Collections Manager of Mineral Sciences


Discussion (6:30 pm): ?Living in the Plate Boundary: Our Torn, Twisted (and Shaky) Landscapes? with Dr. Tanya Atwater
With photos, maps, and computer animations, Atwater will describe the peculiar patterns of Southern California?s mountains, valleys, and coastlines. Then she?ll show how these were formed?one earthquake at a time?by the grinding between the huge North American and Pacific plates.

Atwater's research in tectonics has taken her to the bottoms of the oceans and to mountains on many continents. She is especially well known for her works on the plate tectonic evolution of western North America and the San Andreas Fault system.

In the diorama halls are Breakestra and Fitz & the Tantrums
In 1996 DJ ?Musicman? Miles Tackett formed Breakestra, a funk orchestra featuring Mixmaster Wolf and an everchanging lineup of local talent. The Los Angeles-based ensemble fuses elements of hip hop, funk and sould to create a unique, infectious sound. Back in LA after playing SXSW, Fitz and the Tantrums? soulful 60?s inspired style will make you want to jump up and dance.
