Can slugs, suckers and Siuslaw hairy-necked tiger beetles compete with American Idol and Kitchen Nightmares? Turns out, yes! Oregon Field Guide has been OPB’s weekly TV news magazine for 30 years, exploring the ecological issues, natural wonders and outdoor recreation of the Northwest. At this Science on Tap, Oregon Field Guide Executive Producer Ed Jahn reveals the secret sauce his team has used to turn science-rich stories of lichens, slugs and glacier caves into the stars of television prime time.



We at Science on Tap are committed to offering educational opportunities to adults who want to learn. If the ticket price is a hardship for you, please write to us at [masked] and we’re happy to provide reduced-price tickets to those who request them. Visit for more information on ticket prices.

*A note on advance ticket sales: There is an additional fee for purchase, but this ticket guarantees a seat at the event start time of 7:00pm. In the event of a sold-out show, tickets not redeemed by 7:10pm may be released. Advance ticket sales end at 12:00am the night before the show.

**A note on ticket levels: VIP tickets guarantee front center seating that stays available through entire show — meaning you can arrive late and your seat will be waiting for you. Supporter tickets get VIP benefits (guaranteed seating) plus a voluntary upcharge to help support ASL interpretation services and other event production expenses.
