Marmot talk set at next Sequim Science Café event on Jan. 9

Learn about the natural history of the Olympic Marmot and results of a local long term study when Patti Happe and Rick Klawitter present at the next Sequim Science Café, set for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9, at Paradise Restaurant, 703 N. Sequim Ave.

In 2010, Olympic National Park initiated a monitoring program that enables volunteers to record the presence or absence of marmots in the park.

Happe is the wildlife branch chief for Olympic National Park. Klawitter documents marmot life histories through regular observation and photography.

Attendees are encouraged to arrive at 6 p.m. if they plan to have a meal.

The Science Café is a community service of the Sequim Education Foundation. Programs present expert speakers for adult and young adult audiences interested in current developments in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Science Café events are held on the second Tuesday of the month at the Paradise Restaurant. Admission is free and food and beverages are available for purchase. Admission is free. See www.sequimed.org.
