Lunch and Learn – February 2023- Fitness and Fossils!

This February, our lunch and learn programs turn to fitness and fossils!

On Wednesday, February 8, we welcome the folks from the Alzheimer’s Association with tips from the latest research.  For centuries, we’ve known that the health of the brain and body are connected.  But now, science is able to provide insights into how to make lifestyle choices that may help you keep your brain and body healthy as you age.  Join us to learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition,, exercise, cognitive activity and social engagement.  We will also demonstrate how to use hands-on tools to incorporate these recommendations into a plan for healthy aging. Light lunch will be served.  Register here for this free program.

Fossils Under your Feet- exploring the geology of our area in ages past- with Dr. Maureen Bickley from the Paleontology Research Institute. There is more to knowing about fossils than just picking one up at your feet. What really is a fossil and how are they formed? Dr. Maureen will go through the path to fossilization and 4 common ways a fossil can be formed. Go beyond dinosaurs with your knowledge about fossils. This presentation will include hands-on activities and demonstrations and real fossils and minerals to examine.
