Local glaciers and climate change talk in Sequim on Tuesday

By Peninsula Daily News staff

SEQUIM — Olympic National Park scientist Bill Baccus will discuss “Response of Olympic Mountain Glaciers to Recent Climate Change” at a meeting of the Sequim Education Foundation Science Cafe at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The free Science Cafe has moved to Paradise Restaurant, 703 N. Sequim Ave.

Its informal cafe format will include a 30-minute presentation and a 60-minute period for questions and answers.

Paradise owner James Lam said the restaurant will offer a special “Science Cafe” seafood basket for $8.95 during the event.

Refreshments will be available as well.

Glaciers 101

Baccus will introduce some of the basics of glacier science and findings from a recent study to map and measure Olympic Peninsula glaciers.

Cafe meetings are open to adults and young adults interested in deepening their understanding of science and technology.

The SEF Science Cafe began in January as an outreach for the foundation to promote community interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The first two meetings were held at Lippert’s Restaurant but outgrew the facility.
