History talks return to the Schmidt House! After a long closure due to COVID and a construction project, we’re pleased to announce that monthly History Talks are back! Join us each month for a free hour-long talk on social or natural history, each presented by a recognized expert. All talks will be at noon on a specified Thursday. First come, first seated until capacity is reached.
This History Talk is titled “A Confluence of Conservation: A History of the Nisqually Delta and the US Fish and Wildlife Service”, and will be presented by Julia Pinnix, Visitor Services Manager for the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge Complex. She will speak about the Nisqually Delta, a landscape that embraces time, change, and continuity. Two different cultures clashed here, yet connected to hold a space for wildness. Julia will explore some of the storylines that converge in today’s Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.
History Talks are free to attend, and start at noon. Doors will open at 11:45a.
