Hitchhikers from Afar: Aquatic Invasive Species & You

OSU Cascades Science Pub

  • 5:30 p.m. doors; 6:30 p.m. presentation |
  • Free (reservations are required) |
  • Minor with parent or guardian

Invasive species arrive in Oregon via land, air and sea, and can cause serious harm to our economy and environment. Learn how these invaders arrive in ways we would never anticipate- through innocent classroom projects, gardening, and on floating tsunami debris-and what you can do to prevent and minimize their impact. Chan's research guided the creation of the awardwinning statewide "Silent Invasion" program.

About OSU Cascades Science Pub


A collaboration between OSU-Cascades and OSU's main campus in Corvallis brings you some of OSU's leading researchers. Delve into their fascinating worlds in casual Science Pubs held monthly at McMenamins in Bend, and in Sisters and Sunriver. No scientific background required-just bring your curiosity, sense of humor and appetite for food, drinks and knowledge!

Science Pubs offer a full menu and no-host bar. Networking begins at 5:30 p.m.

Reservations Required and Limited to 100
Science Pubs are free, but their popularity demands that we require reservations no later than 5 p.m. the day prior to each lecture. To make a reservation, visit our website and use the RSVP online form listed below the Science Pub lecture you wish to attend. Online reservations will be available starting six weeks prior to each Science Pub until 5 p.m. the day prior to each lecture. If you need to cancel your reservation, please email us so that we can accommodate others. Accommodations for disabilities may be made by calling 541-322-3100.
