Science on Tap

Science On Tap

Science on Tap Coeur d'Alene is held monthly on the second Tuesday of each month (except for June, July and August) and is open to anyone interested in exploring the latest science and technology by engaging with featured scientists and researchers at the Fort Ground Grill, a local gathering place in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. The public will have ample opportunities to ask questions, voice opinions and learn about new subjects in a casual and informal setting.

"Water-Wise Households: Save Money, Use Less Water, and Keep Your Local Stream or Lake Clean"
Jim Ekins, University of Idaho
Tuesday, May 13
5:30 pm
Fort Ground Grill
705 River Avenue, Coeur d’Alene, ID 83814

This presentation will provide homeowners and landowners with some easy-to-implement tips for using less water in their landscaping and yard, and also help protect surface water going through the storm drains and into the local creeks and lakes. Plus, learn about the IDAH2O Master Water Stewards volunteer water quality monitoring program, a citizen science program where volunteers learn water quality monitoring techniques, then can select a local creek or pond to do regular monitoring. Kids coloring books and Rathdrum-Spokane Aquifer Atlas (map-books) will be available for free for anyone who attends.

Stay Tuned for 2014-2015 Season Details!


The 2013-2014 season of Science on Tap Coeur d’ Alene is sponsored by the University of Idaho-Coeur d'Alene, Idaho INBRE, and the Fort Ground Grill.  Not only do these organizations provide financial and/or in-kind contributions to this program, I call on all of them to recommend speakers and topics for the roster.  I could not pull this program together without them and I am grateful for their continued support!
