Public Lecture Series

The USGS Public Lecture Series has gone virtual! These monthly talks are intended for a general public audience that may not be familiar with the science being discussed. Our speakers are encouraged to thoroughly explain the subject matter being presented, and to define any words or terms that may be unfamiliar to those not having a background or familiarity with the material being presented.


Upcoming dates for 2022 - New start time of 6PM (PST).

  • February 24th: Zeno Levy, California Water Science Center, "Groundwater Depletion and Groundwater Contaminant Migration."
  • March 24th: Matt Kauffman, Wyoming Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, "Species Migration in the Western U.S."
  • April 28th: Justin Welty, Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science Center, "USGS Combined Wildland Fire Dataset for the U.S."
