Kestrel Project Orientation @ HawkWatch Headquarters
Mar 12 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Kestrel Project Orientation @ HawkWatch Headquarters | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Are you interested in being a citizen scientist on HWI’s Kestrel Research Team this spring? We will be hosting an information session and orientation on Saturday. March 12 to kick off the Kestrel breeding season. This will be our fourth season monitoring nestboxes, and the project continues to grow each year. In a nut shell, volunteers spend 2-4 hours every week to 10 days monitoring nestboxes for use, checking the status of known nests, and recording data. It’s a blast watching these colorful falcons do their thing as they raise young from eggs, to downy nestlings, to raucous fledglings. Most volunteers will get the unique opportunity to assist our science staff in banding Kestrel chicks while learning firsthand about Kestrels and the threats they face. If this sounds fascinating to you, join us at 11am on March 12th to learn more!

Tanner Lecture on Human Values by Siddhartha Mukherjee @ Kingsbury Hall
Mar 22 @ 7:00 pm
Tanner Lecture on Human Values by Siddhartha Mukherjee @ Kingsbury Hall | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

A cancer specialist, Siddhartha Mukherjee has devoted his life to caring for victims of cancer, a disease that sickens and kills millions of people around the world each year. As a researcher, his laboratory is on the forefront of discovering new cancer drugs using innovative biological methods. Dr. Mukherjee is equally devoted to and effective in communicating the “story” of cancer through his writings.
In his engrossing book, The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer, Dr. Mukherjee gives readers a fascinating look into the origins and causes of cancer, its deadly effect on the human body, how it has virtually enveloped modern civilization, and the epic battles that are taking place to control, cure, and conquer it.

As he notes, the disease now touches in some way the lives of every man, woman and child in the world, while scientists and physicians work tirelessly to bring new treatments and hope to its victims.

Very special thanks to our co-sponsor: the University of Utah School of Medicine.

The Tanner Lectures on Human Values is a distinguished series that instigates educational and scientific discussions relating to human values. The Lectures are held annually at Harvard University, Yale University, Princeton University, University of Michigan, Stanford University, University of California Berkeley, University of Utah, University of Oxford, and the University of Cambridge.
