Speaker: Ami Thompson, Conservation Biology Ph.D. Candidate, University of Minnesota

Dragonflies are tenacious, beautiful, and delightfully curious creatures. Ami will bring you along on her journey to understand how both really common and super rare dragonflies manage to scrape out a living in our climatically extreme great northern state. This talk will feature photos and videos of her adventurous field work executed in remote areas of Minnesota - demonstrating just how crazy scientists can be when motivated to find answers to their research questions. Woven into the science story-telling will be a dash of personal narrative about how citizen science opened the door for Ami to earn her PhD.

Tuesday, May 21 at 7:00pm (doors at 6:00) $6-$12 sliding scale

NEW YORK MAGAZINE CRITIC’S PICK

After a sold-out national tour, this 2016 New York Times Critics’ Pick will take on new life here at the Jungle. In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six wildly disparate urbanites embark on a silent retreat. The Huffington Post calls it, “a play unlike any other;” Variety claims it’s “flawless.” Filled with awkward and insightful humor, Drama Desk Award-winner Bess Wohl’s Small Mouth Sounds is the unique and compassionate new play that asks how we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us.
