This month we bring you a Nerd Nite first: a married couple sharing the stage together as our two speakers! We’ll be learning about the wild world of crash test dummy and the literally wild world of our national parks. Be there and be square!

America’s National Parks: the non-drowsy formula
Emily Gunther Lloyd
Do you love the wilds of North America? Were you thrilled when you heard Ken Burns had done a documentary on the National Parks? Did you eagerly settle in to watch all 12 hours, eyes glued to the tv, sitting on the edge of your seat? How long until you passed out, drooling on your cat? Do you even remember anything beyond the opening music? Allow a former NPS ranger to help! Enjoy a pleasurable, organized, relevant, and thematic talk about the quirky history of America’s greatest idea, and the people who have kept it going.
Emily Gunther Lloyd, armchair naturalist and former Cave Guide, enjoys spending time with her family and soaking up as much trivia about Natural History as humanly possible. Long live Sir David Attenborough!
