First Fridays 2024: From Feelings to Pheromones
Join us this season as we explore the forces that shape the behaviors of life forms large and small. From reproduction and propagation in the natural world to the sex life of other species, we'll untangle the constructs of gender, feelings and pheromones. We’ll also explore some of the predicaments facing all species of life, including over- and under-population, and offer doable solutions that we can all participate in.
