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 part of a movement of science socials such as Science Cafes, Cafe Scientifique, Atlanta Science Tavern (another Meetup), and Thirst DC. Our mission is to humanize science and scientists - sharing the work of science in a way that is warm, engaging, often funny, inspiring, even beautiful. 

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, often with dark skies for observing astronomy, 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.

It's free to join this group, and our events are free except where there is a fee charged by one of our partners. We often pass the Erlenmeyer flask to collect a few bucks to offset our expenses, but it's optional to chip in. We hope you join us at one of our events!
