Introducing the Triangle Sound Series

By Jim Hawhee, APNEP
April 20, 2015

Daily Planet at the Nature Research Center

APNEP’s Raleigh offices are located in the Nature Research Center, part of the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences. Since its dedication in 2012, the building’s four-story stainless steel globe, known as the Daily Planet, has arguably become downtown Raleigh’s most iconic feature. The rest of the facility is no less impressive, teaching visitors “how we know” about the natural world.

Though we have long partnered with the museum’s world-class staff on projects, we’ve never fully taken advantage of their world-class facilities.

Therefore, we’re pleased to announce the Triangle Sound Series. Each month, from Earth Day in April to National Estuaries Week in September, APNEP will feature a speaker at the museum to explore the natural wonders of North Carolina’s sounds.

Our series will begin this week, as I was recently invited to talk about the sounds during the museum’s Earth Day celebration. Come join us this Wednesday at 11 a.m. in the Daily Planet theater as I discuss the “The ABCs of North Carolina’s Sounds.”

Next month, we’re excited to host Dr. Joel Fodrie of UNC’s Institute of Marine Sciences for an evening Science Café. Mark your calendar for May 28 at 7 p.m., where Dr. Fodrie will give a talk entitled “Ecology You Can Eat: North Carolina’s Estuarine Fishes.” Science Cafés are informal and interactive affairs, so be sure to bring your appetite and curiosity along for the evening.

Additional talks are presently being planned and will be announced as they are confirmed.

We’re excited to highlight North Carolina’s sounds here in the Triangle, as we’ve found that many people living west of I-95 are unfamiliar with our vast estuarine system. We also hope these talks will provide meaningful networking opportunities for local marine science, water quality and environmental professionals.

We’ll look forward to seeing some of you in downtown Raleigh this year. As for the rest… see you out in sound country, or even better, on the sounds themselves!
