NightLife celebrates National Women’s History Month with a spotlight on women in science from the Academy and other Bay Area institutions—whether you’re an aspiring scientist or you just love NightLife, there’s plenty to discover.

  • Learn about the pioneering achievements and adventures of some of the Academy’s first female collections managers and curators with Rebekah Kim, Academy librarian.
  • Throughout the night you’ll get a crash course in a dozen scientific fields, from mammalogy to coral reefs and infectious diseases to forests, with pop-up lightning talks and a panel discussion presented by 500 Women Scientists.
  • Learn about the efforts to save Ethiopian forests with Dr. Meg Lowman, the Academy’s Lindsay Chair of Botany and Senior Scientist in Plant Conservation, and the ecology of infectious diseases with Stanford grad students.
  • Examine Guadalupe fur seal skulls from the Academy’s Ornithology and Mammalogy collection and ask curatorial assistant Sue Pemberton about the story behind them.
  • Peek at fossils, crinoids, and camouflaged nudibranchs, and learn about the recent sea star epidemic, the evolution of HIV drug resistance, and what it takes to study ants in the field.
  • Get inspired by fascinating animals from their scientific collections during a watercolor workshop with Tiffany Bozic, an artist whose colorful work depicts surreal nature-inspired scenes.
