Deep Diving into Microbes
When you think of microbes, what are the first things that come to mind? Disease, pathogens, the same old boring things, but microbes are so much more than that! They produce the air that we breathe and the food that we eat. They live as high as our upper atmosphere and as low as the depths of the ocean, and everywhere in between. In this talk, we will take a deep dive into the incredible diversity and ecological importance that microbes have to offer, with an emphasis on the ocean!
We are moving the talk to 7 pm because of the daylight savings time change! Kid’s table and natural history table will start at 6 pm. Looking forward to seeing y’all this Thursday, 12/8!
