Nerdy Lineup for July 14, 2015

Sea Lion Tsunami – Sausalito’s Marine Mammal Center is investigating the alarming increase in local whale and sea lion strandings to help prevent the next disaster. Learn how marine veterinarians are able to determine the exact cause of death of a multi-ton cetacean and what studies of mass strandings, biotoxins and epilepsy in marine mammals can tell us about the health of our Bay.

Dr. Franken-screen – Learn how the one man production company that contributed to documentaries on The Cliff House, Tower Records, Playland at the Beach and a soon to be released film on Frankenstein’s movie makeup artist practices his craft and stitches together a new movie. From digging up long lost archival material to using the latest video techniques, find out how November Fire turned passion for obscure history and the macabre into hit film productions and used it to pay the rent… sometimes.

Burbank of America – Luther Burbank’s agricultural inventions saved Ireland, created McDonald’s French fries, and took the spines out of cacti. Using Darwin’s new theories of variation and inheritance, Burbank’s experimental farm in Santa Rosa produced over eight hundred novel plant cultivars that spread throughout California and the rest of the nation, including the plumcot, the white blackberry, and the famous Flaming Gold Nectarine. Learn how the man once known as the world’s most famous horticulturist inspired a yearly parade, became friends with Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, and changed the way America eats.

Please Note: This event takes place on July 14, 2015 and not on July 7 as was originally posted.
