Coos History Museum Tuesday Talks – June 5

Coos History Museum to Host First Tuesday Talks Lecture Series in June

Guest Speaker: David George Gordon – Author, Speaker, and Sasquatch Scholar
Tuesday – June 5, 2018
6:00pm – 8:30pm

People in the Northwest have been reporting encounters with the Sasquatch—a
hairy, eight to ten foot-tall hominid —for hundreds of years. Yet aside from a
collection of large footprint casts and several fairly convincing eyewitness accounts,
no scientifically accepted evidence has been offered to establish this being’s
existence. David George Gordon will present “Sasquatch: Man-Ape or Myth?”
during this illustrated talk at the Coos History Museum on Tuesday – June 5, 2018.
Gordon will address ways to become an effective “citizen scientist,” gathering
credible evidence that can be used to prove or disprove the Sasquatch’s existence.
Audience members will be encouraged to tell their tales and share their experiences
with this mysterious creature – a favorite part of this thought-provoking evening.
David George Gordon is the author of The Sasquatch Seeker’s Field Manual: Using
Citizen Science to Uncover North America's Most Elusive Creature. An
accomplished science communicator, he has spoken at the American Museum of
Natural History, The Philadelphia Academy of Sciences, Yale University, the
Smithsonian Institution and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museums in Hollywood and
Times Square. Copies of David’s book will be available for purchase in the museum
store. A book signing will follow the lecture.
The lecture will begin at 6:30pm. The museum, galleries, and store will be open for
extended hours during the event. Cost for the event is $7.00 for adults. Admission is
free for museum members.

In its second year, the First Tuesday Talks Lecture Series is a monthly event at the
Coos History Museum.The FirstThursday Talks Lecture Series is hosted February

Co with in-kind support from The Mill Casino. For more information, contact the
