Richard Nelson and Hank Lentfer will be the featured speakers at the next Natural History Seminar series presentation. On Thursday, December 5 at 7:30 pm in room 229 on the UAS Sitka Campus, Nelson and Lentfer will discuss their project "Voices of Glacier Bay National Park." The Glacier Bay audio project is an effort to create a library documenting natural sounds from the park, including everything from the subtle scratches of a crab's claw on sand grains, to the reverberating trumpet calls of humpback whales as they echo across the bay. Nelson is known for his weekly series on NPR, "Encounters North". The presentation at UAS, like other Nelson/Lentfer productions, promises to combine careful science with the dramatic and emotional excitement of eyewitness encounters by an artistic eye. Feel free to contact Kitty LaBounty at UAS with your questions about the event. Phone: 747-9432 or email email@example.com Funding for the seminar series is provided by a grant to the Sitka Sound Science Center by the Sitka Permanent Charitable Trust and by the University of Alaska Southeast.
