We're not fooling anyone. On Wednesday, April 1, the U.S. Geological Survey will kick off a new public lecture series and it's free!

Don't miss the first one. From 7:00 - 8:00 PM, Dr. John Jones, an expert in remote sensing, will discuss several projects in the Shenandoah National Park and the Everglades. Learn how science from satellites can help decision-makers address issues related to climate change, water resources, and habitat conditions.  

The USGS "Science in Action" public lecture series in Reston, Va. will be held the first Wednesday of every month. These evening events are free to the public and intended for a general audience to familiarize them with science issues that are meaningful to our daily lives. The USGS speakers are selected for their ability and enthusiasm to share their expertise with an audience that may be unfamiliar with the topic.  

Upcoming lectures will be about climate change, hurricanes, energy, glaciers, and a fascinating expedition down the Congo River.

Lectures are held at the USGS building located at 12201 Sunrise Valley Dr., Reston, Va. 

For more information visit the USGS Public Lecture Web site or call 703-648-4748.
