Winter Lecture Series

  • This event has passed.

January 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The racks of bucks aren’t built to last, falling off every spring only to regrow each summer. They grow back more impressive than before. How do these amazing ornaments “know” how to grow? To find answers we’ll do a little exploring in the science of evolutionary developmental biology.

The presenter, Dr. Jason Davis, is an Associate Professor of Biology and Associate Director of the Honors College at Radford University. He holds a PhD in Neuroscience and Animal Behavior from Emory University. He is co-director of Radford’s Ecophysiology Research Lab, where his work focuses on the physiological and behavioral mechanisms that animals use to adapt to a complex world.

The Winter Lecture Series is presented by the Friends of Smith Mountain Lake State Park. Proceeds go to help fund educational programs in the park.

Ticket Prices: Single ticket: $ 8, Single season ticket: $22, Two season tickets: $35,

Friends of SMLSP – season ticket: $20, Prices include parking. All tickets paid at the door.
